Together, we optimize your business model to achieve a sustainable future and reduce your carbon footprint.
Human-induced climate change, driven by CO2 emissions and other greenhouse gases, poses critical challenges for companies. At the same time climate-positive corporate management also opens up new opportunities. Customer needs are becoming more and more green and act as game changers that are challenging current products, services, processes and mindsets. For a company to reduce its carbon footprint, it is important to clearly position, empower and initiate change now.
In doing so, the carbon footprint should be reduced. However, the business model and market approach must also be adapted to the new challenges in order to tap into new market potentials. Two groups of use cases are particularly important. On the one hand, we should pilot and anchor sustainable aspects of eco-innovation criteria in R&D. On the other hand, a value network should be intelligently connected, in order to achieve maximum resource efficiency and, ideally, zero environmental impact. However, the key to long-term change towards greater climate neutrality includes the targeted management of initiatives, as well as mindful, motivated and empowered employees. With an optimized business model, use cases for reducing CO2 emissions and long-term integration of change, your company’s resilience is increased and its carbon footprint is reduced.
At their core, the initiatives contribute to the company's economic value.
- Targeted reduction of CO2 emissions and therefore resources to reduce operating costs.
- Exploitation of new market potentials through climate-neutral solutions for sustainable growth.
- Increased resilience to environmental risks and thus avoidance of potential costs.
The initiatives are realized in a dynamic system with all relevant stakeholders.
- Increasing customer/ shareholder demand & requirements for sustainability
- Ensuring competitiveness in an increasingly green market environment.
- Integration of the entire valuenetwork for minimal risk and maximum synergy effects.
- Consideration of regulations, such as the CO2 tax or the German Lieferkettengesetz (Human Rights Initiative).
The initiatives increase the company's resilience and protect the environment.
- Increased customer loyalty through corporate responsibility as a driver for a sustainable future.
- Compliance with the nine planetary boundaries framework to ensure long-term economic and ecosystem success.
