Sustainability champion

The sustainability goals that we pursue for ourselves go hand in hand with a grwoing portfolio of sustainability-related services for our customers.


Sustainability is a fundamental principle of DEKRA’s global business activities. In addition to the ambitious sustainability goals that we pursue for ourselves, we are continually adding sustainability-related services to our portfolio.

DEKRA’s internationally oriented sustainability strategy for 2025 includes ambitious, measurable goals in key areas, such as carbon footprint, renewable energy sources, employee engagement, diversity, workplace safety, social engagement, partnerships and the supply chain. In 2020, DEKRA joined the United Nations Global Compact: a global initiative that promotes business operations according to 10 principles for human rights, the environment and more. In addition, DEKRA has joined the RE100 initiative, expressing the company’s commitment to transitioning completely to renewable energy sources. DEKRA aims to achieve this goal as early as 2025.

In addition to its own sustainability initiatives, DEKRA is also expanding its own innovative range of sustainability-related services to help clients with progressive solutions in this area. That includes sustainability consulting, testing and certification of e-mobility solutions, audits according to sustainability standards, climate impact assessments and many other independent services.
