Sustainability consulting - our services for your sustainability goals

The legislator demands more transparency in the area of sustainability. Create your sustainability reporting with us and implement the findings in a targeted manner.Get in touch now

Sustainability is no longer a topic for the future: The climate catastrophe is already a real threat in many parts of the world. And for some years now, selected companies - e.g. in the financial services sector - have had to report on their sustainability measures. So far, this has taken the form of short prose. Some well-intentioned activities, such as planting trees, have been staged for publicity purposes - and some measures have provoked accusations of "green washing."

The time for lip service is now coming to an end: With measures such as the Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD), the Supply Chain Act or the currently discussed European Sustainability Reporting Standards (ESRS), legislators are obliging companies to take and document concrete sustainability measures. We support you not only in your sustainability reporting, but also in implementing the findings with concrete measures.

Definition: Sustainability and sustainability reporting

What does sustainability mean for companies?

Drei Dimensionen der Nachhaltigkeit: Environmental Social Governance

Probably the best-known definition of sustainability or sustainable development comes from the United Nations: "Sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs."  (Brundtland Report 1987)

Sustainability includes three dimensions: Environmental (Environment), Social (Social), and Governance. Collectively, the term Environmental Social Governance (ESG) has become established. To be considered sustainable, companies must take measures in all three areas, e.g., operate efficiently and conserve resources, reduce their CO2 emissions and support employees.

What is sustainability reporting?

Sustainability reporting documents a company's sustainability strategy and measures - the EU's Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) calls on business to establish appropriate controlling with sustainability indicators. Companies must familiarize themselves with the relevant data sources, sets of rules and reporting requirements and establish the necessary IT and process foundations. Otherwise, they risk becoming bogged down in exorbitant manual work, risking significant regulatory penalties and reputational damage.

Sustainability pays off

Perhaps you have been dealing with the topic of sustainability for some time - or perhaps the current legal situation is forcing you to take appropriate measures in the short term. The fact is: Sustainability pays off - even beyond mere legal compliance! According to the UN Sustainable Development Goals, sustainability not only includes goals such as energy or resource savings, but also education, equality, innovation, inclusion and production. In all these areas you can

  • act responsibly for the benefit of people and the environment,
  • but also differentiate yourself from the competition and generate added value for your company:


Employees prefer companies that already act sustainably today - and focus, for example, on equal pay, inclusion and further training. In the future, investors and customers will also avoid companies that resist these trends.


Greater sustainability also includes making processes and the use of resources more efficient. This not only makes your company greener, but also saves you time and money.


Sustainability helps to save costs. By planning intelligently, you can, for example, reduce expenditure on IT procurement and operation. Efficient hardware, long runtimes and intelligent deletion plans to save data conserve IT budget and resources.

Legal compliance

Last but not least, the fulfillment of obligations to the legislator is also essential for many companies. It is foreseeable that further requirements will follow in the future. Be prepared today for the challenges of tomorrow.
