Why get your sustainability certificate?

Sustainability plays an increasingly important role in business operations. An important step in this is obtaining a sustainability certificate, such as the DEKRA sustainability certificate. This gives your organisation several advantages:

Benefits of sustainability certification

  • Good for the environment

    The most important factor is that it has a positive effect on the environment. Besides all the benefits that apply to your business. Together, we are all trying to make the earth a better place to live. Sustainability certification at DEKRA helps make that happen for your organisation and the world.

  • Increasing demand for products or services

    Obtaining sustainability certification increases your competitiveness. Compared to your competitors, you can then create a leading position within your sector. There is an increasing demand for parties offering sustainable products or services. In addition, certain products or services even require you to be sustainably certified. Moreover, with sustainability certification, you show that your organisation is making progress in this area. This then attracts more attention from customers because you are sustainably certified.

  • Image

    With sustainability certification, you show that sustainability is an important value within your organisation. This can provide an advantage in attracting and maintaining customers.

  • Financial savings

    A sustainable policy in your company often also results in financial savings. Think, for example, of solar panels, electric vehicles and ecological temperature control in the office. These investments can save a lot of money on fuel and energy bills.

  • Sustainability decisive for certain customers

    Organisations can demand for sustainable certification in their purchasing process as a guidance to SRI. This is possible because these companies want to include environmental and sustainability aspects. A sustainability certificate can therefore be decisive in attracting certain customers.
