Protection of the environment

General notes

Environmental note

Daimler's declared policy is one of comprehensive environmental protection.

Our objectives are to use the natural resources which form the basis of our existence on this planet sparingly and in a manner which takes the requirements of both nature and humanity into consideration.

You too can help to protect the environment by operating your vehicle in an environmentally-responsible manner.

Fuel consumption and the rate of engine, transmission, brake and tyre wear depend on the following factors:

  • operating conditions of your vehicle

  • your personal driving style

You can influence both factors. Therefore, please bear the following in mind:

Operating conditions:

  • avoid short trips, as these increase fuel consumption.

  • observe the correct tyre pressure.

  • do not carry any unnecessary weight in the vehicle.

  • remove the roof rack once you no longer need it.

  • a regularly serviced vehicle will contribute to environmental protection. You should therefore adhere to the service intervals.

  • all maintenance work should be carried out at a qualified specialist workshop.

Personal driving style:

  • do not depress the accelerator pedal when starting the engine.

  • do not warm up the engine when the vehicle is stationary.

  • drive carefully and maintain a safe distance from the vehicle in front.

  • avoid frequent, sudden acceleration and braking.

  • change gear in good time and use each gear only up to mbsymb6_inv_00d4.png of its maximum engine speed.

  • switch off the engine in stationary traffic.

  • monitor the vehicle's fuel consumption.

Returning used vehicles

Mercedes-Benz will take back your Mercedes-Benz in order to dispose of it in an environmentally responsible manner in accordance with the European Union (EU) End of Life Vehicles Directive.

The End of Life Vehicles Directive applies to vehicles with a gross vehicle weight of up to 3.5 t, in accordance with national regulations. For several years, Mercedes-Benz has been meeting all the legal requirements for a design that allows recycling and re-use. There is a network of return points and disassembly plants that can recycle your vehicle in an environmentally responsible manner. The methods employed in vehicle and parts recycling are constantly being developed and improved. This means that your Mercedes-Benz will also continue to meet even the increased recycling quotas in the future in good time. You can obtain further information from your national Mercedes-Benz home page or your national hotline number.
