Sustainability pays off - it's as simple as that. For those who still have doubts about this, we recommend reading the meta-study From the Stockholder to the Stakeholder(2015): 88% of the scientific analyses show that companies with robust sustainability management can, on average, deliver better operational and financial results than others.

Those who see sustainability as an opportunity will find DQS to be the right sparring partner for transformation. With robust audits, we enable transparency, underpin confidence in your organization and create a foundation for informed decision-making - for management, investors, buyers, lenders and other stakeholders.

Social audits in the supply chain

Against a backdrop of increasing regulation, supplier assessment is gaining in importance.
