The impact of climate change is becoming impossible to ignore. Roland Berger is joining COP27 to turn pledges into sustainable solutions and business opportunities.
Sustainability & Climate Action
Companies and organizations urgently need to improve their environmental impact. We help them rise to the challenge and maintain competitiveness.
To avoid an ecological catastrophe and its consequences for business, society and the planet, the corporate world, driven by pressure from regulators and customers, is starting to set ambitious emissions reduction targets to limit global warming to 1.5°C.
While long-term net-zero targets are necessary, strategic moves in the next few years count the most. Accelerating climate action is a key precondition for future competitiveness. New business models and deep profit pools for long-term competitiveness are forming now, and companies who actively embed sustainability in their strategy today will carve out for themselves a competitive advantage over those who wait, due to new revenue opportunities, a better understanding of shifting customer behaviors, less exposure to climate risks, and lower climate-related costs. The benefits of climate action could already be visible in the short to medium term.
We are helping clients turn their pledges into action and transform their business and operating models, integrating sustainability into their whole value chain and culture to secure competitiveness in the new, sustainable economy of tomorrow.

To meet the Paris target, companies need to speed up their carbon reduction plans. We suggest six areas where firms can accelerate decarbonization.
Opportunities for innovation in sustainable packaging
With the market for sustainable packaging rapidly expanding, packaging companies need to systematically screen the value chain for opportunities to innovate.
Recycling of paper-based hybrid packaging
How the recycling of paper-based hybrid packaging can help packaging manufacturers to reach European sustainability targets and remain competitive
Transporting the fuel of the future
Roland Berger’s study determines that cost-efficient methods of storing and transporting hydrogen are critical to the realization of a decarbonized economy.
Green steel: The race is on
In order to meet EU emission targets, the steel industry will need to undergo a rapid green transformation, the costs of which will have to be borne by taxpayers and end customers/consumers.
Combating climate change – Now means NOW!
The RB Carbon Footprint Model enables decision-makers to immediately start making a difference to climate change at the local level.
Climate action: A new competitiveness paradigm
By viewing decarbonization as an opportunity, rather than a threat, and taking immediate action on climate change, companies can gain a competitive edge.
