STEM Education

Mercedes-Benz is the product of innovation, and innovation is only possible with a foundation of education. We support STEM programs in local schools and provide scholarships for local high school students to continue their education. We also create opportunities for students to increase their awareness and stewardship of the environment. At Mercedes-Benz Vans Charleston, we want children to have the knowledge and desire to improve the world.

MBV Charleston is committed to supporting STEM education programs that empower the next generation. We want to help expose students to new aspects of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics, providing them with relevant and real-world knowledge to prepare them for successful careers.

Sustainability

Our Charleston plant has several environmental initiatives, including: Paperless Factory and Zero Waste to Landfill. Our goal is to minimize waste while still delivering a top quality product. Beyond our plant’s doors, we work to restore the oyster reef and support sea turtle rescue and rehabilitation. These local environmental efforts allow us to keep the Lowcountry beautiful and sustainable for everyone.

MBV Charleston is deeply rooted in the Charleston community. From the very beginning, we have made the sustainable treatment of the environment a priority. We strive to create a positive contribution for our community and future generations by supporting efforts that champion sustainability.
