Touting it’s relationship with the riverkeeper group, Karl Moeller, an environmental engineer interviewed in the promotional film said, “Mercedes likes to support the Black Warrior Riverkeepers because of the work that they do to protect the water we drink.”
The company also recycles 66% of it’s waste and has a zero waste to landfill commitment.
“Mercedes-Benz U.S. International has been one of the Black Warrior Riverkeeper’s major donors for many years,” stated Charles Scribner, Executive Director of the Black Warrior Riverkeeper. “They are perennially the lead sponsor of our concert fundraiser at Avondale Brewing Company, Earthbound’s Earthfest. They also annually convene dozens of top environmental organizations to educate hundreds of their employees about conservation.”
