_Understanding sustainability.

Everyone talks about sustainability. However, unless lived in real life it is but a trendy phrase. In our company we have been actively living sustainability for many decades because we consider it an important component of efficiency in construction.

Sustainability has many dimensions.

Sustainable products and services

High product quality and maximum protection against material wear means long life span and safety. Thanks to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001, all Doka products comply with the most stringent requirements in terms of quality and environment. Beyond that, each new product generation is compatible with the one already in existence. Compatibility is a prerequisite for a long product cycle. Moreover, an extended product cycle is resource-sparing in every way and contributes to positive outcomes in terms of efficiency.

Many Doka products are manufactured from wood and timber. From production onward, Doka is committed to resource-conserving usage of this valuable, renewable raw material. In the construction sector as elsewhere, moreover, demand is increasing for wood and timber products from raw materials verifiably sourced from sustainable forestry operations. The result is that many manufacturers offer plywood products made from controlled and certified materials.

Two verification organisations have become internationally established, and Doka co-operates closely with them. The following Doka sales companies have been certified in accordance with the underlying requirements and are therefore in a position to offer certified products:



The scope of the certified products is set out in the annex to the PEFCTM certificate.

Sustainable business models

Renting instead of buying - a sustainable model offered by Doka to accommodate ever more last-minute contract awards and abbreviated planning cycles. Along the way, renting also saves resources such as energy and raw materials. Doka's pre-assembly service is another opportunity for customers to realise savings, such as in assembly efforts and complex work processes. Here formwork units are tailor-made for the long-term by combining existing Doka systems with customised solutions. In addition, Doka's reconditioning service extends the life span, provides safety and saves time and money by delivering perfectly functioning materials.

Sustainable logistics

Logistics is a vital factor for ideal construction site implementation. Doka plays its part with international logistics hubs. With their proximity to customers they ensure high availability as well as flexible and fast delivery to construction sites. Furthermore, short delivery paths reduce CO2 emissions in the long term.

Sustainability through training and professional development

Well-trained employees are not only smart but above all highly motivated and solution-oriented workers. This is an important aspect as construction projects are becoming ever more complex and efficiency-driven. This is the reason Doka makes significant investments in ongoing employee trainings. It therefore benefits from above-average loyalty to the company in the long run.

Construction site safety

User safety is another top priority at Doka. This was the reason for establishing Doka Safety, an important initiative aimed at developing heightened awareness of safety-related issues as part of comprehensive safety training sessions at customer sites. After all, safety motivates construction site workers to perform at maximum levels and reduces the risk that in a worst-case scenario the construction site comes to a standstill. By now studies provide evidence that the factor for calculating "return on prevention" is 2.2.
