Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class acquires TUV Sud environmental certification

Neutral inspectors from the TÜV Süd technical inspection authority awarded the Mercedes-Benz GLA-Class compact SUV an Environmental Certificate complying with ISO standard TR 14062. The award is given on the basis of comprehensive life-cycle assessment of the model series, documenting every detail of relevance for the environment.

“We have already demonstrated with the M- and the GLK-Class that energy efficiency and environmental compatibility are fully reconcilable with an SUV. As one of the most fuel-efficient vehicles in its segment, the new GLA-Class is now setting benchmarks in the SUV world,” notes Professor Dr Herbert Kohler, Chief Environmental Officer at Daimler AG.

Mercedes-Benz cars are analysed for environmental compatibility throughout their life cycle, from production, years of usage, and recycling after use. Environmental Certificate and supplementary information is made available to the public as through the company’s “Life Cycle” documentation series.
