Sustainability issues are having an increasingly dramatic impact on businesses, investors, consumers, the workforce and governments. Whilst the Covid-19 pandemic has caused widespread disruption, it has also provided momentum and opportunity to rethink and reconfigure for resilience.
What was once not long ago considered "nice to have" is nowadays crucial to a company's long-term economic success: Sustainability plays a central role in how business is conducted. The focus lies on how a company's business impacts the environment and society, and how this shapes its business model. At the end of the day, sustainability is tantamount to a company's "right to play".
Customers, investors and society in general have become interested in more than just the hard financial figures. They also demand information that goes beyond a company's financial report. They expect companies to take responsibility by identifying the ecological and social impact of their business models and steering it through sustainable development.

What significance do sustainability issues have for my business model and how can we successfully anchor sustainability in our corporate strategy?
What risks and opportunities exist in my supply chain?
What requirements do my investors have and what does that mean for my enterprise value?
How can I participate in a circular economy to reduce costs or realise new business opportunities?
How can I measure and better understand the social and environmental impacts of my business activities?
