Environmental and social goals as integral elements of your company’s sustainability strategy

Companies are increasingly faced with the challenge of reconciling their pursuit of profit with socially and environmentally compatible approaches. Sustainability considerations lead to changes in customer preferences and to new regulations and technologies, creating opportunities for innovative business models, new products, and efficiency gains for companies with a compelling sustainability strategy.

For decades, Carbotech AG has been a reliable, innovative, and science-driven partner for companies looking to optimize their environmental, social, and economic impact. We are dedicated to supporting clients create a sustainability vision and to align their current strategy with the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). We calculate environmental impacts and define relevant Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) for monitoring and communication to stakeholders. Our approach is client-specific, methodical and transparent. Our team consists of experts on strategy development, life cycle assessments and pollutant measurements. Our networks also connect us with research institutions and standards organizations that enable us to exchange information with experts on topics like energy technology, human rights regulations, and supply chain management.

Your benefit:

  • Understanding and addressing the opportunities and challenges that arise from the sustainability trend
  • Sustainability as a competitive advantage: Determining the current situation and identifying innovation potential and risk factors for the company
  • Development of strategies that integrate environmental, social and economic goals and meet the growing demands of investors, customers and legislators
  • Establishing contacts and communicating with relevant partners and stakeholders, e.g. interest groups and NGOs
  • Information advantage through topical and industry-specific research

The journey from making the decision to becoming a more sustainable company to a state where economic, environmental, and social goals are aligned looks different for every organization. Our consulting projects are tailored to each client situation and range from half-day workshops to long-term support on this “sustainability journey”. Below is a selection of our modular consulting services:
