Our Understanding of Sustainability

Our core business is represented by high-quality, independent and sustainable engineering and planning work. As a service provider, we take the needs of our customers in terms of sustainability very seriously and help to continuously improve the sustainability performance within the value chain. In addition, we use our entrepreneurial and technical knowledge to provide our clients with concrete and sustainable solutions that, in particular, avoid, mitigate or compensate for environmental risks. 

In all our engineering and planning services, sustainable planning means understanding environmental risks right from the start and giving high priority to resource protection. In our interdisciplinary planning and project teams environmental risk projects are addressed and analysed in their entire range – right from the beginning. With our professional competence and our planning experience, our concepts and designs can already be aware of environmental risks at a very early stage of the project and can be integrated in a smart way. Consistent recording of environmental risks and the planning of these are the base for sustainable planning and subsequent project success.

Particularly in our infrastructure planning, strategic environmental assessments, environmental compatibility studies, landscape maps, species protection reviews or other specialist analyses (soil and water surveys) developed by inhouse experts, they help us to scrutinize and optimize projects in advance. Thus, interventions in nature and landscape can be minimized with help of appropriate compensation measures.

Through resource-saving solutions in the areas of infrastructure, urban development and architecture, we contribute to the topic of smart energy efficiency within buildings and infrastructure facilities. Our planning services in water supply and sanitation increasingly focus on energy-optimized technical solutions at pumping stations and sewage treatment plants as well as on long-term protection of water resources.

Dorsch Gruppe has its own departments linked with sustainability, for example in Abu Dhabi. As a "first mover" in our industry, two subsidiaries in Germany have already been officially certified in terms of "Sustainable Corporate Management".

Our quality culture

Everyone talks about quality - but what exactly does that mean?

According the principle of "keep it simple", we also understand our own quality culture. For Dorsch it is important that at the end of the day the customer is satisfied with our performance. All measures must therefore be geared towards this ultimate goal. This can only be achieved, if our employees will questioning and continuously improve all our processes on the way to our (consulting) services. That is why Dorsch Gruppe has introduced a quality management system that provides orientation and transparency as a kind of compass.

This quality management system as part of the integrated Dorsch management system pursues i. g. the following important topics:

  • Sustainability: The principles of sustainable business management are part of the Dorsch Management System.
  • Risk Awareness: We need to be aware of the risks involved in delivering performance to our clients, in order to provide appropriate advice.
  • Transparency: Transparent documented processes make it easy to standardize and optimize processes.
  • Continuity: Through the continuous improvement process, we want to increase customer satisfaction steadily.
  • Know how: Our employees have the matching qualifications for our relevant customers. Through appropriate knowledge management, this knowledge is documented and passed on.
