How to gain insight into your organization's performance when it comes to sustainability?

Sustainability certifications

Combine business success with concern for people and the environment

Of course you want your organisation to grow, but you want it to be healthy too. You also want it to respect the people you work with and the physical environment you operate in - now and with the future in mind. In other words, your organisation wants to achieve the perfect balance between people, planet and profit. This is why sustainability is an important part of your management system. How do you know whether your organisation acts in a sustainable way? And if so, how do you show this to your customers, partners and employees? DEKRA helps you answer both questions via audits and certification.

Sustainability is an important element in your management system​. The sustainability certification audit gives you an insight into how your organisation performs on various sustainability themes. It also shows how you can improve your performance. There are various sustainability standards against which certification is possible, including energy efficiency and social enterprise.

The benefits of sustainability certification

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:

Gain an insight into your organisation’s CO₂ emissions

    The CO2 Performance Ladder encourages organisations to reduce their CO2 emissions. Your position on the ladder shows you how well you are doing and will be an important factor for your ability to submit successful government tenders. DEKRA can carry out an audit to determine your position on the CO₂ performance ladder for you. The audit will involve the assessment of the CO2 emission reduction goals and control measures you have in place in both your business operations and when implementing projects. We also look at the control measures you are implementing to ensure your organisation achieves energy savings, uses materials efficiently and opts for sustainable energy. You could also choose to combine this audit with audits for other standards, like ISO 9001 and ISO 14001.
