Evidence suggests that Daimler has not supported EU NOx policy; they appear to have highlighted the cost of emission standards and reportedly influenced against reforms to testing procedures. Daimler’s engagement in EU NOx policy appears to be largely focused on measures to safeguard the diesel industry in light of increasing regulation. In 2013 the CEO of Daimler Trucks and Buses, Wolfgang Bernhard, suggested that more stringent emissions standards beyond Euro VI were not needed: “With Euro VI, emissions will be so minimal they’re actually hard to measure. Hence, we strongly believe that a further tightening of limits beyond Euro VI is not necessary.” Daimler has repeatedly emphasized the stringency of Euro 6 emissions standards, in 2014 describing the regulation as “one of the strictest emissions standards in the world” and invoking Euro 6 standards as a contributory factor for expected market contraction of 10%. In reporting the Volkswagen emissions scandal in October 2015, Daimler described the manipulation of emissions testing in terms of “irregularities”, and emphasized the adverse impact on share price. Although in the wake of the scandal, Daimler’s CEO stated support for reforms to emissions testing, media sources have reported that Daimler was part of a German industry-led challenge to European regulatory reform in October 2015, calling for less stringent levels of compliance and an extended period for automakers to adapt to on-the-road testing. Daimler is prominent within the VDA.

How to Read our Relationship Score Map

In this section, we depict graphically the relationships the corporation has with trade associations, federations, advocacy groups and other third parties who may be acting on their behalf to influence climate change policy. Each of the columns above represents one relationship the corporation appears to have with such a third party. In these columns, the top, dark section represents the strength of the relationship the corporation has with the influencer. For example if a corporation's senior executive also held a key role in the trade association, we would deem this to be a strong relationship and it would be on the far left of the chart above, with the weaker ones to the right. Click on these grey shaded upper sections for details of these relationships. The middle section contains a link to the organization score details of the influencer concerned, so you can see the details of its climate change policy influence. Click on the middle sections for for details of the trade associations. The lower section contains the organization score of that influencer, the lower the more negatively it is influencing climate policy.
