Sustainability & Climate Action

Companies and organizations urgently need to improve their environmental impact. We help them rise to the challenge.

"CO2 is emerging as a new currency by which climate performance will be measured and influenced. It will impact the profitability of all sectors."

Tackling climate change is the task of the century. Today's companies must take rapid climate action – not just as a moral choice, but as an economic necessity. Pressure is growing from customers, policymakers, and investors for corporate management to come up with initiatives and environmental strategies geared towards corporate sustainability and net-zero emissions. Roland Berger offers the consulting expertise you need to rise to this challenge.

We believe that the world is heading towards a new sustainable paradigm – one that takes the entire value cycle into account. That is good news for companies: Players who make sustainability an integral part of their strategy today will benefit from a significant competitive advantage in the future. Besides the challenges, there are opportunities and upsides for those who move quickly. Being sustainable is not just good for the planet, it's good for business.

While long-term net-zero targets are necessary, strategic moves and concrete actions in the next few years count the most. New business models and deep profit pools for long-term competitiveness are forming now, and companies that actively embed corporate sustainability in their strategy today stand to gain in the form of new revenue opportunities, a better understanding of shifting customer behaviors, less exposure to climate risks and lower climate-related costs across the supply chain – all benefits that could already be visible in the short to medium term.
