SUSTAINABILITY

For us here at VOK DAMS, sustainability is not only green – it has all kinds of colors. It is as colorful as the world is and as we are. And it is about creating better results – in all facets possible. As effective and efficient, as inspiring and as long-lasting as possible.

Sustainability is not just about saving resources – it is about questioning one’s approach, about finding new solutions and not being satisfied with the standard answer.

This is why we initiated a CSR team to help us think big and to focus on all three sustainability pillars: on social, ecological and economical solutions. Our multidisciplinary team is a co-working unit representing the different departments and personalities of the VOK DAMS family. It works relentlessly on new solutions and ideas to challenge standards and tackles concrete proposals and developments. As consultants, it members are on hand to help the various contact persons with a wide range of tasks in order to jointly develop solutions on how concepts can be implemented even more sustainably and how VOK DAMS itself can act even more responsibly.

 

OUR ROAD TO SUSTAINABILITY

Sustainability is about little steps as much as about big steps. As regards big steps and our pioneering spirit, we have created several groundbreaking changes for us and the industry over the past decades. In the late 1990s, we created "sustainable events", carried out the first surveys and, a little later, set new standards with a "Carbon Footprint Calculation for Events", which we, years later, developed further as the CO2 climate calculator. In 1998 we were the first agency in Germany to be ISO certified - here, too, strict sustainability requirements applied and still apply. A little later we joined the UN Global Compact. As a result of our early and intensive commitment to sustainable action, we supported the first-ever award ceremony of the German Sustainability Award in 2008 and ensured the sustainability of the event through our consulting services.

 

CREATING SUSTAINABLE RESULTS

However, what sets us apart is our mindset. Here, agile thinking and behavior meets sustainability. Since 2018, we have defined ourselves as an agile agency. For us, agile is more than just a way of working or organizing. It describes our entire mindset. And besides elements like "continuous learning", "failure acceptance", "positive attitude", "sustainable approach" has long been one of the essential characteristics that we not only live by, but also continuously train and develop. Sustainability@VOK DAMS has always been part of our culture. But now we enter a new dimension by implementing a fully sustainable management system with international acceptance, which helps us as well as our clients and partners to reach ambitious corporate responsibility goals.

“By constantly questioning and optimizing our own actions, monitoring what we do and did, we are in an exciting process of dialogue and improvements for more sustainability. Strictly in line with our purpose: Creating better results." – Claudia Verena Krause, Head of CSR
