Strategy & Targets
With our Sustainability Strategy 2025, we strive to further improve sustainability performance within our company and our value chains as well as for our customers through our business activities.
DEKRA has been thinking and operating sustainably in its role as an expert organisation for 95 years. Safe use of technology and protecting people and the environment are in our DNA. Yet never before have sustainability and resource conservation had the global impact and scope as they have today. A sense of responsibility towards nature, people, society and the economy, as well as long-term sustainability with a view to future generations – these are the values by which successful companies are measured today on a global scale.
DEKRA initiated a change years ago that involved embedding the sustainable use of resources and responsible management as goals. Since 2017, DEKRA has been adhering to The Sustainability Code . We and our approximately 44,000 employees worldwide are improving step by step in our defined areas of focus: climate & environment , employees & society , supply & value chain , and management & governance .
DEKRA aims to become a Sustainability Pioneer by 2025. In summer 2020, we took the strategic step to commit ourselves to the principles of the UN Global Compact and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Sustainability is therefore one of DEKRA's unshakable values.
With our Sustainability Strategy 2025, we are striving to further improve sustainability performance within our company and our value chains, as well as through our business relationships with our customers. We have set ourselves the goal of making major progress in key areas by 2025. They include: carbon footprint, renewable energy, employee engagement and training, diversity, occupational safety, social commitment, partnerships, sustainability in the supply chain, and sustainability-related services and solutions.
