Political institutions are holding companies accountable

The message to companies from national and EU administrations is clear: not just capital market-oriented companies, but companies from all sectors must increasingly comply with legal transparency obligations in order to avoid high costs.

Stakeholders are demanding sustainability

Despite the increasing interest of all stakeholders in sustainability and the growing pressure on companies, thus far, only a few companies have begun a comprehensive transformation towards sustainability.

Why is that?

One reason for this is that many companies lack the necessary sustainability skills for their employees. This complicates the definition of concrete goals and often makes the implementation of a sustainability strategy impossible. Companies that recognize and act on this now are gaining clear competitive advantages and the confidence of investors.

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

e.g. risk minimization through legally compliant CSR reporting
e.g. stakeholder involvement, development of basic expertise for things such as CO2 reduction
First results
e.g. reduced footprint, higher attractiveness as an employer
e.g. increase in sales
Positive influence
e.g. thought leadership, securing competitive advanteages, first mover advantage
