Climate change is one of the fundamental challenges of the 21st century. Industry shares responsibility for this, which is increasingly being demanded by legislators and growing awareness among customers. The starting points for sustainable production are diverse and include socially and environmentally compatible supply chains, raw material and energy efficiency, and circular economy. But how can companies align their business activities in a holistically sustainable way? And can this create a competitive advantage, growth and economic success?
The consortium benchmarking "Sustainability Transformation" offered companies to find answers to these and other central questions. The aim was to identify success factors for sustainability-oriented corporate management. To this end, an international study identified and analyzed successful practices in terms of strategies, structures and methods. As a consortium partner, companies had the opportunity to help shape the issues and benefit first-hand from in-depth insights.
