Corporate profile & sustainability strategy

to sustainability for
a safe world

Whether on the road, at work, or at home: in all essential areas of life, DEKRA's 45,000 or so employees fulfill our statutory mission in over 60 countries on every continent, thus meeting people's basic need for safety. We are constantly aware of our responsibility in the context of increasing global challenges with regard to sustainable development in business and industry, the environment, and society.

Automated vehicles, the global movement of goods, a connected world: the advances of our modern-day society were still a long way off when DEKRA (Deutscher Kraftfahrzeug-Überwachungs-Verein e.V.; German Motor Vehicle Inspection Association) was registered at the Berlin-Mitte District Court on June 30, 1925. However, what back then was considered science fiction is now reality – with all the resultant positive and negative changes for many people around the world. As a responsible, innovative, international company in the TIC (testing, inspection and certification) sector, providing consulting, testing, certification and audit services, we confront the challenges resulting from those changes every day – and most especially in response to digital transformation.

That is true of all eight of DEKRA's Service Divisions. Whether in vehicle testing, claims and expertise, industrial inspection and construction auditing, safety consulting, the testing and certification of products and systems, or training services and temp work, the Service Divisions provide the foundation for people to live safely as we advance into an increasingly dynamic future. Tens of thousands of DEKRA experts work to ensure people can live in safety, seeking to eliminate serious injury and fatalities, major safety failings and data misuse.
