Key economic objectives, data & facts

Due to the long-term nature of our projects and the associated high volatility in the independent consulting engineers sector, we generally aim for long-term goals in our sustainability management. We also develop our measures accordingly. Our core objectives communicated herewith (as of the reporting date 31.12.2022) are based on the year 2019 with a target horizon until 2025.

Dorsch International recorded a slightly increase (+0,67 %) in the order book in 2022 over 2021.

Compared with the previous year 2021 the project results of Dorsch International decreased by -6,30 % in 2022. The overall performance of the company nevertheless increased by +7,34 % over the same period compared to the previous year 2021.

After a very good result in 2020 and a significant decline in 2021, this corresponds to a long-term increase of only + 1.89 % in overall performance in the period since 2019. The long-standing core target of increasing total output by +15 % by 2025 is still some way off due to the negative impact of the Corona crisis on operations. Nevertheless, the ambitious target will be maintained for the time being.

The successful in-house CIP programme is entering the next phase and is being expanded. Diversity-neutral career paths are currently being established, the programme is well advanced.

The proportion of operational staff trained in BIM methodology is currently being steadily increased. A reliable figure should be available soon. The same applies to the share of remote working - currently, DI staff are offered the opportunity to work from home on 2 out of 5 days, but only some of the colleagues are taking advantage of this.

Definition of our objectives

After a positive target settlement 2015 to 2021, our goals had to be redefined. Due to the far-reaching planning horizons in our sector, long-term target setting has proven to be the best approach.

We have chosen the pre-Covid19 year 2019 as the base year for our current objectives in order to exclude pandemic-related influences. Our targets up to 2025 are shown below, based on the 2019 figures.
