ESG Excellence to Support Sustainable Business Operations for Repairshops and Dealerships

Repair shops or car dealerships that serve car manufacturers, insurance providers and/or private customers are increasingly encouraged to strive for sustainable business practices based on ESG (Environmental, Social, Governance) targets and guidelines. We conduct a multi-level assessment to meet your ESG requirements and commitments.

Our multi-level ESG assessment helps you:

  • Define achievable goals and meet evolving market demands
  • Adopt sustainable practices to reduce the environmental footprint and improve social impact
  • Ensure safety in the workplace, promote fair and ethical processes, and support positive change
  • Understand ESG practices and sustainability strategies across your supply chain

Introduction of our ESG assessment for Repair Shops and Car Dealerships

Repair shops and car dealerships are impacted by the demands of the automotive and insurance industries, with an increasing need to consider environmental, social and governance (ESG) principles to work together to ensure responsible business practices in line with regulatory requirements and meet stakeholder requirements and consumer expectations.
In order to maintain a consistently high quality standard in the industry, the ESG Assessment represents a transparent and neutral evaluation concept especially for repair workshops and car dealerships or body and paint shops, which both highlights the potential of the individual company and enables independent comparability on the market.
We help you optimize your business operations and processes so that you are resilient to potential risks and can build stakeholder trust.
We provide a comprehensive assessment of your strategies so that your ESG-related measures can be implemented appropriately and effectively, both for you and for your supply chain partners. At DEKRA, we understand that every individual path to success is unique.
