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.

The way towards a renewable future
All companies rely on energy to run their operations. And almost all countries have pledged to become climate neutral and ramp up renewable energy capacity. However, progress in this endeavor is coming more slowly than needed. Learn how companies can overcome the faltering progress of governments and secure reliable access to renewable energy on their own.
Overcoming the uncertainties of clean technologies
Many of the clean technologies needed to achieve the 1.5 °C scenario are already technically available. However, scaling them up will require massive additional R&D investments. Learn how de-risking can support the process of getting cutting-edge technologies ready for market and making a significant impact on emissions reduction.
To meet the Paris target, companies need to speed up their carbon reduction plans. We suggest six areas where firms can accelerate decarbonization.
