Corporate Responsibility - Sustainability and Compliance

"We want to be the world's best sustainable and independent provider of technical services for testing, inspection, certification, consulting, and training." Our mission statement documents both our claim and philosophy. Sustainability is a core topic for us and determines our actions. We work profit-oriented with respect to our social and environmental responsibility. We truly believe companies will only be successful in the long term if they incorporate sustainability in their philosophy and in the way they manage their business.

What do we understand by corporate responsibility? To us, it means responding to our customers’ future needs and contributing to their success with the services we offer. We help our clients make their products and processes more efficient and more sustainable. You could also say: Fit for the future. On the other hand, we face the responsibility we have as a company for people, society, and the environment. We are committed to making a contribution to a future that meets both human and environmental needs on a sustainable basis.

In this context, our compliance management system forms the foundation of our corporate sustainability. Compliance - the adherence to applicable laws and internal regulations is of paramount importance for a testing and certification body. Our most important asset is therefore the trust our customers invest in the quality and integrity of our services.

Those topics that are seen as specially relevant for the future viability of TÜV Rheinland from our internal as well as from our stakeholder perspective are the foundation of our sustainability strategy. We have defined key areas of activity in the following five dimensions:
