Our engagement as knowledge partner

"We need to create resilient, transparent, and sustainable supply chains. The implementation of the right set-up and technologies in global supply chains can help us to meet the goals of the Paris agreement."

As a thought leader and consulting partner in the field of Climate Action and against the backdrop of our own net zero emission target, we are engaging actively with the COP26 movement and joining as knowledge partner for the 12th Sustainable Innovation Forum (SIF).

For 11 years, this format has united heads of state and multilaterals, environment ministers, business leaders, investors, and NGOs alongside the UN Climate Change negotiations. It is a world-class, high-level summit with the aim of identifying the breakthrough innovation and technologies that can be deployed and scaled up now to tackle climate change, and which underlines the importance of public-private partnerships and financing. We are actively engaging in the global discourse on solutions which combat climate change that are not only actionable in the future, but already today. Virtual participants from all over the globe are expected with numerous high level executives and climate leaders on the ground in Glasgow.

It's time to act and present concrete measures – actionable today, not tomorrow

"Decarbonization and net zero targets should not be seen as a drain on the business. Corporate leaders need to start realizing that this is an investment in their future competitiveness."

We are all in the same boat – the whole of humanity. Optimizing our climate footprint can only help if we achieve an overall reduction of carbon emissions on a global scale.
