Sustainability is becoming a must-have
Solve the challenges of tomorrow with your company now

Political institutions are holding companies accountable

The message for companies from national and EU policies is clear:
Not just capital market-oriented companies, but more and more companies from all sectors will have to comply with legal transparency obligations in the future in order to avoid high costs.

Stakeholders are demanding sustainability

Despite rising demand for sustainability from stakeholders and pressure on companies, few companies have so far embarked on a real sustainability transformation.

Why might that be?

Many companies lack sustainability skills in their staff.* This makes it difficult to set a clear goal and often makes it impossible to implement a sustainability strategy.

The 5 stages of sustainability
Achieve the next level of the sustainability transformation with further training

e.g. risk minimization through legally compliant CSR reporting
e.g. stakeholder involvement, development of basic expertise for things such as CO2 reduction
Initial results
e.g. reduced footprint, higher attractiveness as an employer
e.g. increase in sales
Positive influence

e.g. thought leadership, securing the competitive advantage, first mover advantage
