18. Corporate Citizenship

The company discloses how it contributes to corporate citizenship in the regions in which it conducts its core business activities.

DEKRA places a strong emphasis on its social commitment. DEKRA supports social and ecological projects, preferably with a focus on safety. For example, we support the Safe Kids Worldwide organization that is committed to the safety of children, and the environmental NGO Planète Urgence. DEKRA also makes a significant contribution to safety in the environment and society, and thereby to corporate citizenship, through its services. We take care of safety in all areas of life: Not only in the areas of road safety and occupational safety but also, for instance, through checking safety in public children’s playgrounds or through testing drinking water. Over and beyond this, our expert services have a positive impact on society: We offer integration and language courses for refugees, for instance, and through promoting dual-track vocational training in Europe, by training health care professionals in Albania. We are an important employer and create new jobs on an ongoing basis. Here, we are also making important contributions to corporate citizenship.
