DEKRA is reducing its emissions within the framework of our sustainability strategy. The aim is to reduce our CO2 footprint by 50 percent by 2025 in comparison with 2018. To achieve this, DEKRA is using solutions such as virtual meetings, carpools, public transport, and train journeys instead of rental cars and air travel. As a result, our CO2 emissions per employee resulting from business travel have already reduced by 16 percent from 2018 to 2019 in Germany. DEKRA is increasingly relying on environmentally friendly drive technologies in its vehicle fleet. This should reduce the CO2 emissions from company cars. Since 2020, 100 percent of DEKRA’s electricity consumption in Germany has come from renewable energy sources. This has made it possible for us to save 7,750 metric tons of CO2 each year. By 2025, 100 percent of electricity consumption across the Group should come from renewable energy sources.
Preserving resources includes the materials required for tasks in offices and laboratories, in addition to our use of energy, water, and land. With services for air pollution control, soil and ground water protection, pollutant and waste management, energy efficiency, and environmental management system certification, DEKRA is also influencing its customers when it comes to the use of resources. In Global Purchasing, too, DEKRA prioritizes sustainable alternatives over conventional products as far as possible.
