What is round and makes a sustainable impact? The “Platinum” rating from EcoVadis, a leading international standard for sustainability. Receiving this award shows that DEKRA is in the top 1% of companies in their category ranked. “The EcoVadis rating confirms that our sustainability strategy is on track to be a success,” says DEKRA board member Wolfgang Linsenmaier, who is also responsible for sustainability at DEKRA.
As the leading non-listed company in the TIC sector (Testing, Inspection, Certification), DEKRA stands behind its environmental and social responsibility. “In 2020, we were able to leap from a silver rating – skipping gold – straight to platinum, within a year. We improved notably in all four of the areas for evaluation: Environment, Workers’ and Human Rights, Ethics, and Sustainable Procurement. We see this as an impetus for us to keep improving ourselves in the area of sustainability,” says Linsenmaier.
