Sustainability is a broad topic that must be interpreted individually for each company and affects all areas of the company.
Act in such a way that both the needs of those living today and the needs of those living in the future can be met
Find your own way
Sustainability is a multifaceted term defined by various concepts such as ESG, CSR or the Triple Bottom Line (People, Planet, Profit). However, companies should be careful not to get hung up on one of these definitions. After all, sustainability offers many (development) opportunities that companies should take advantage of. The fulfillment of reporting obligations, such as those of the CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive), is a possible first step in anchoring sustainability in the corporate strategy.
However, our understanding of sustainability goes beyond this step. We help you find a specific and powerful path for your company that is tailored to your individual needs and challenges.
Shaping the future
Sustainability is a new dimension being introduced into our business paradigm. It is no longer about being successful in the short term, but about taking responsibility for the future.
This sustainable responsibility means that we can still be measured by our actions many years from now.
Companies must be able to anticipate the future in order to achieve long-term success and prepare for future values, paradigms and systems. Management tools that are oriented to past trends are no longer suitable for this purpose.
Companies that are willing to acquire future-oriented skills (“Future Skills”) have the opportunity to help shape the future and ultimately be successful.
Our “Business 3.0” consulting model is geared to precisely this task.
Clear areas of action for a sustainable company
To create a true sustainability path, we need to focus on three important areas: urgent issues, legal obligations and our own path. Only through the skilful interplay of these focus areas can we achieve a sustainable future.
Comply with rules and regulations
Legal obligations There are numerous laws and regulations in Germany that are relevant to companies. Listing all of the legal provisions would go beyond the scope of this section.
However, there are some important laws that companies should be sure to follow. These include the CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive) and the EU Taxonomy, which prescribe rules on the disclosure of sustainability information for companies. Also of great importance is the LkSG (Supply Chain Sourcing Obligations Act). Here, companies are held accountable to take responsibility for their supply chains and to commit to decent working conditions and environmental protection.
Knowledge of these laws and their implementation are essential for companies to be on the safe side legally and to fulfill their social responsibility.
CO2 reduction and other urgent issues
Urgent Topics The reduction of CO2 emissions is an urgent topic in the sustainability management of every company. The stakes are high, as it is far from certain that overall the necessary reductions will be achieved to limit the global temperature rise to 1.5 degrees: Every ton of CO2 reduced counts.
It should also be checked whether there is any further urgent need for action in the company in the area of sustainability, for example with regard to environmental protection, personnel issues or commitment to society. If this is the case, these topics must also be addressed now.

From Greenwashing to Insight-Driven
It is the impact that makes the difference. How sustainable a company is can be determined by how consistently and honestly it strives for real, sustainable impact. Green- or bluewashing is no longer up to date. Sustainability management based purely on stakeholders misses out on a great number of opportunities.
With a change of perspective, which is focused on achieving an actual impact and dissolving from old patterns of behaving and thinking (“Insight-Driven”), sustainability becomes an entrepreneurial success story.
By striving to move directly to an “Insight-Driven” state, companies save time and money and skip ineffective intermediate stages.
