    • Mission Statement

At DOKYO we believe in sustainable growth through sustainable work. We want to create added value holistically - for customers, consumers, suppliers and our own employees. That is why our mission is to make good communication. For good products. From companies, we can identify with.

    • Vision Statement

We are on a journey with the goal to be more than a self-sustaining, socially & ecologically responsible organization. The first steps have been taken, but we want to go much further:   

We want to be an agency that not only operates sustainably but also helps its clients to improve their social and environmental performance. Because we work with all parts of the value chain, we can also create positive value for everyone. We know that together we can achieve more and actively shape the future. So our journey is far from over.  


The DOKYO philosophy is more than a set of rules and regulations, it is a way of life inspired on our day to day observations and interactions. It aligns with our mission and vision of “Value Creation” encouraging and paving a path for a value-oriented business responsible for generating a positive social and environmental impact with our business activities. The DOKYO Philosophy is also our Business Code of Ethics, outlining ethical business practices and responsibility in the workplace.

The company values freedom of expression, freedom of association, open communication and honest feedback. We believe that our philosophy is applicable in the personal and day to day life irrespective of the company interests; we advocate for human rights and equality in the workplace and society as a whole. We believe that our approach will attract collaborators who share the same philosophy.


Our employees are our greatest strength and one of the most important stakeholders. Therefore, it is our responsibility as an organisation to identify and take care of the needs of our employees and help nurture the talent that we have. Our policy is entirely dedicated to creating an effective and healthy workforce.
