In September 2002, a "Social Responsibility Principles of Daimler" was signed by Daimler and the Daimler World Employee Committee, on behalf of the International Metalworkers' Federation, one of IndustriALL’s predecessor organizations.
In the agreement, Daimler acknowledges its social responsibility and supports the principles on human and workers' rights and the environment which form the basis for the United Nations' Global Compact initiative.
The framework agreement also states that Daimler supports and encourages its suppliers to introduce and implement "equivalent principles" in their own companies and expects its suppliers to incorporate these principles as "a basis for relations with Daimler."
