Holistic and interdisciplinary expertise specific to your use case
TÜV SÜD provides competence in multiple industries and regions related to sustainability. Our experts provide you with know-how centred around specific use cases. We guide our customers on sustainability topics with our expert knowledge and provide an independent validation of their commitment to sustainability with testing, inspection, audit and certification services.
Next practices in sustainability
Sustainability standards create a common benchmark to measure and validate the impact of sustainability efforts. With our vast experience in sustainability, our experts are invited to participate in national and international standard setting committees to shape the development of these standards. By working with us, you gain access to valuable information to next practices in sustainability.
TÜV SÜD has a global footprint of offices, laboratories and experts located in over 1,000 locations. By participating actively as founding members in sustainability initiatives in different countries, we are a part of a worldwide ecosystem and network realising sustainability. This global network enables us to partner our customers with best-in-class knowledge wherever their sustainability ambitions take them, while maintaining independence and impartiality.
Climate change is the most critical challenge to achieving sustainable development in the coming decades.
During the United Nations (UN) Climate Action Summit in June 2019, UN Leaders announced the urgency of limiting global temperature rise to 1.5°C in response to the global climate crisis. To realise this, UN calls upon the world to attain carbon neutrality before 2050.
Countries globally are committing to this goal by charting national movements. At the corporate level, companies are rising to the challenge by committing to measures aligned with the UN Sustainability Development Goals. Sustainability is expected to drive the narrative in business and society in the coming decades.
Societies and politics are implementing new frame works and regulations in order to achieve national and international greenhouse gas reduction goals, while companies are committed to leverage even more ambitious reduction goals along their specific value chains. This includes their own production processes and facilities but also covers suppliers and external service providers.
To enable progress in sustainable development, we partner our customers to fulfil their commitment to employees, customers and environment with a holistic portfolio of corporate sustainability services.
Through our services, we aim to inspire trust in the safety of sustainable technologies and boost credibility of processes, products, and systems.
Together with our partners, we offer tailored sustainability solutions for our clients along existing and upcoming regulations and by sharing best practices to facilitate the transition process most efficiently and with lasting impact. This creates certainty and traceability and therefore the necessary independent transparency towards regulators, the internal management and finally towards the general public.
