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.
    Around the world, we are witnessing dramatic consequences of human-induced climate change. The rise in global temperatures and increasingly unpredictable weather patterns are having devastating consequences on biodiversity and human societies.
    Merely complying with regulations is no longer enough. For companies, it is a moral as well as business imperative to be part of the solution. DEKRA is aware of its responsibility and has placed sustainability, in all its aspects, at the core of our Vision 2025: we will be the global partner for a safe, secure, and sustainable world!
    That means that we are working tirelessly to improve our own internal sustainability performance, and sustainability performance of our supply chain. And we are supporting our customers with deep expertise and innovative services on their journeys towards their environmental, social and governance goals.
    With our Sustainability Strategy, our objective is to achieve by 2025 major progress in our four fields of action “climate & environment” , “employees & society” , “supply & value chain” , and “management & governance” . This includes continuously reducing our carbon footprint, expanding our use of renewable energy, increasing employee training and engagement, promoting diversity and inclusion, improving occupational health and safety, promoting sustainability in the supply chain, and expanding the range of sustainability-related services we offer.
    As part of our Sustainability Strategy, we strive to support our customers on their sustainability journeys. The DEKRA Corporate Focus Area (CFA) Sustainability Services was created for this reason and involves the expansion of our service portfolio in the three key areas “energy transition”, “ESG” (Environment, Social, Governance), and “circular economy”.
    In our Sustainability Magazine , we are delighted to introduce our Sustainability Strategy 2025, to share examples of innovative sustainability services we offer and to present internal measures we have taken. In this way, we would like you to be part of our journey towards a more sustainable future.
