Acting responsibly for a future worth living

Acting responsibly for a future worth living

Acting sustainably means accepting responsibility today for the world of tomorrow. The way that tomorrow’s generations will live is determined by the actions we take today and the sustainability of our current economic direction and our lifestyle. Companies like ours have a duty to keep this in the forefront of our minds as we play our part in shaping the future.


Future-proof and responsible action aimed at protecting people and the environment has been a pillar of TÜV SÜD’s corporate objectives from the outset and has served the company as a guiding principle since its foundation in 1866. For nearly 160 years, we have enabled progress by protecting people, the environment and assets from technology-related risks. We support and shape technological transformation, constantly adjusting and aligning our services with the goal of guaranteeing optimum safety and security as well as efficient business operations. By doing so, we constantly reaffirm our commitment to our founding principles.

At TÜV SÜD we are very clear about our goal: to live up to our responsibility as a company and enable a future worth living for generations to come. Many of our services have contributed to this goal since our inception: our certificates and certification marks confirm the safety, security, and efficiency of infrastructure and equipment, assure the quality of products and processes, and make performance transparent.

We inspire trust – perhaps the foremost requirement for joint action. We are convinced that well-being for as many people as possible can only be achieved if the interests of as many social groups as possible are taken into account. Only if there is broad consensus between the spheres of business, society, and the environment will we be able to live sustainably and create value. The challenges ahead of us of the current multiple crisis can only be mastered together.

We drive our company’s sustainable strategy and work consistently on the systematization and concretisation of our activities. We are increasingly aligning our entire company to sustainability criteria, ensuring transparency in both our objective and our actions.
