Green NCAP announces new member DEKRA

Today, Green NCAP announces that DEKRA - Germany’s largest vehicle inspection company is joining the Green NCAP programme. Both organisations share common goals and a commitment to promote the development of cars that are clean, energy efficient and cause as little harm to the environment as possible. DEKRA will also contribute to the long-term ambitions of Green NCAP, given its extensive experience in the field of testing.

Green NCAP, through its active testing programme that delivers results to consumers about the environmental impact of today’s vehicles, aims to promote cars that have a lower impact on the environment, thereby improving air quality, minimising the use of resources and, in the long-term, reducing global warming. These are ambitions that DEKRA is clearly aligned with.

DEKRA offers qualified and independent expert services, with the long-term vision of creating a safe, secure, and sustainable world. DEKRA has been active in the field of safety for almost 100 years and ensures safety on the road, at work, and at home. As one of the world’s leading vehicle inspection and testing organisations, the company currently employs more than 48,000 people in approximately 60 countries on all five continents. DEKRA established the Corporate Focus Area of Sustainability with experts working on the development of new sustainable services. Experts from this area will be supporting the development of life cycle assessment in collaboration with Green NCAP.

Green NCAP is keen to encourage other like-minded independent testing organisations in the transport sector to join our organisation and DEKRA offers extensive experience and knowledge that Green NCAP can maximise to its benefit. To gain access to a range of experts who can help us to understand the true environmental impact of vehicles throughout their life cycle is a clear benefit of this partnership
Green NCAP can then continue with its key objective of providing consumers with a clear picture of how much their vehicle affects the climate as well as the energy cars use before they even get on the road
Dr. Aleksandar Damyanov, Green NCAP’s Technical Manager

The vision of a sustainable world links Green NCAP and DEKRA perfectly. With our experts and infrastructure, we want to offer our expertise to assist in shaping the future Green NCAP testing programme. We are looking forward to contributing with our extensive knowledge and experience to the goals of Euro NCAP and Green NCAP to make the digitized and automated mobility of the future safe, secure, and sustainable
Jann Fehlauer, Managing Director of DEKRA Automobil

DEKRA already has associate membership status for safety in collaboration with Euro NCAP.

About Green NCAP

Green NCAP is an independent initiative which promotes the development of cars which are clean, energy efficient and cause as little harm to the environment as possible.
Green NCAP uses a broad range of tests to address the flaws in approval tests and, through consumer information, rewards those manufacturers whose vehicles go beyond the minimum requirements and offer excellent, robust, real-world performance.
We believe that consumers need to be adequately informed about the energy consumption and related greenhouse gas emissions of the vehicle of their choice.
