Mercedes Benz set up a global sustainability strategy and is supporting several projects for a “green” future. According to their german website this strategy is called TrueBlueSolutions – the way to an emission-free mobility. This challenge and goal is integrating all departments of the company from production to marketing.
Mercedes is supporting one very cool project, the Pangaea Expedition. The experienced sailor Mike Horn has build a special ship (see below) to sail around the world to create attention for environmental issues.
