Daimler honours Brembo with sustainability award

The Daimler Group has honoured one of its key suppliers, Brembo, with the Daimler Supplier Award in Sustainability in 2019 (Production Material category).

The brake manufacturer was acknowledged as a top supplier in Sustainability in 2019, in recognition for a comprehensive, systematic, holistic sustainability approach and CO2 reduction in its in-house production.

Brembo CEO Daniele Schillaci, chairman Alberto Bombassei and chief corporate social responsibility officer Cristina Bombassei were at the Carl Benz-Arena in Stuttgart to collect the award.

Cristina Bombassei said the award is a great honour. “We are driven by our passion for the automotive industry and we want to make sure to continue to bring this passion, together with our innovation, our values of sustainability and social responsibility – which are pillars for both our companies – into our daily efforts as partners towards a sustainable mobility”.

Brembo was also recently named on CDP’s Climate Change and Water Security ‘A’ List.

The Daimler Supplier Award in Sustainability is tribute to a partnership of excellence between Brembo and Daimler dating back to the early 1990s, when calipers were first supplied for a number of vehicles.

Thirty years later and Brembo still supplies discs, calipers and often the entire brake system for top-of-the-range models produced by the German car maker, as well as brake components for commercial vehicles and for motorsport.
