Sustainability is the first priority. Changes are necessary for this - we can approach this together.

On the road to sustainable management, companies need clearly defined goals and a concept for how to achieve them - tasks that TÜV Rheinland has been solving competently and professionally for 150 years now. Our tests, assessments, training and certifications set standards in many industries worldwide. As a member and player in the UN Global Compact, we are committed to the multifaceted approaches of sustainability and live them with a binding sustainability strategy.

We make the world a safer place for more than 150 years. Today for tomorrow. Join us!

How we shape and live sustainability

We combine the absolute necessity for sustainability with an elementary conviction: "Only companies that act economically, ecologically and socially in a comprehensive sense will be successful in the long term."

On this basis, we are following our mission statement of being the world's best and most trusted partner for new technologies and sustainable services in testing, inspection, certification and training with a clear sustainability strategy for the coming years.
