ANNUAL REPORT 2016
CHANGE BORN FROM RESPONSIBILITY
The MAHLE Group is a leading global development partner to the automotive industry and offers its customers complete systems from a product range that is unrivaled in breadth and depth. Our new developments are geared toward the further optimization of combustion engines and thermal management solutions as well as the expansion of e-mobility. We also want to set new future standards with our innovative solutions by consistently using and expanding our knowledge and innovative strength.
With our strategic orientation, we are addressing megatrends such as population growth, urbanization, globalization, connectivity, or limiting emissions to promote climate protection. We not only see these as an opportunity for further growth, but as an obligation to design our technologies so that mobility on our planet is as environmentally friendly as possible.
The Mahle brothers have bequeathed us a company structure that secures our independence and the long-term orientation of the group. In accordance with their specifications, we want to continue to successfully develop MAHLE as a leading company and attractive employer.
“Change born from responsibility” summarizes the course we are on. We are thus explicitly committed to fairness, legality, cultural diversity, and equal opportunities. Our relationship with our employees, customers, and suppliers is based on these values. Assuming social responsibility is a corporate objective set by our founders. It is always incorporated into all of our decisions—now and in the future.
