Vision and ambition

Safe and sustainable world

Our Vision

We aspire to become the global partner for a secure, safe, and sustainable world by our 100th anniversary in 2025.

Safety and security are fundamental human needs, as essential as the air we breathe. Particularly in our highly developed era, it is crucial never to take safety and security for granted.

As one of the world's leading providers of expert services, DEKRA has been working towards a safer world since its founding in 1925. Over the years, our expertise has made significant contributions to reducing the risk of accidents and personal injuries. For us, safety and security also mean acting sustainably to preserve our world for future generations.

As leaders in inspection, testing, and certification, our vision is to ensure that products, assets, and technologies are safe, secure, and sustainable – our role is to instill confidence in people.

Our mission

DEKRA ensures safety, security, and sustainability in three crucial aspects of life – on the road, in the workplace, and at home.

Safety is a fundamental need for us all, and accidents and injuries can occur on the road, at work, or at home. We believe many of these accidents can be avoided, so we aim to help reduce their occurrence by:
  • Supporting the development, use, and maintenance of technical equipment used on the road, at work, or at home.
  • Developing and improving standards and guidelines that ensure optimal safety performance.
  • Promoting awareness of safety, knowledge about safety, and behaviors related to safety.

DEKRA:s history
On February 23, 1895, Södra Sveriges Ångpanneförening was formed, the first of its kind.
