MAKING SUSTAINABILITY an integral part of the Company strategy
Climate protection and the achievement of climate targets are already an integral part of a successful business strategy for many companies – for others it still means a huge challenge.
Time is pressing: due to upcoming legislation, even small or medium-sized companies that still have a lot of catching up to do in this area now urgently need to look more closely at aspects of sustainability. On 01.01.2023, the Supply Chain Act will come into force in Germany and on 01.01.2024, the new Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive (CSRD) of the EU. The latter affects approximately 50,000 companies in the EU and applies retroactively for the reporting year 2023. Even if one’s own company is not yet directly affected by this new directive, it may be required by its customers to report transparency in the supply chain and to provide proof of its sustainability activities.
Our industry-independent consulting approach is aimed at companies of all sizes. We are compliant with the reporting standards of the GHG Protocol, GRI, UN Global Compact, GLEC and others. We develop the right solution for our clients, whether it is a comprehensive sustainability strategy or individual first steps that a company would like to implement on the way to climate neutrality, e.g. getting transparency about CO2 emissions, develop reduction measures or work on compensation options. In addition, we offer support in evaluating science-based targets (SBT) and other sustainability programs.
CALCULATIONS FROM SCOPE 1-3
After an analysis of the status quo, we determine the individual reduction targets together with our clients and recommend, which aspects should be included in the calculation of their company’s carbon footprint, depending on individual goals. We focus on valid parameters and guidelines according to the Greenhouse Gas Protocol (GHG Protocol), which divide the different emission sources into so-called “scopes”.
STANDARDIZED PROCESS FOR A SUCCESSFUL SUSTAINABILITY MANAGEMENT
As independent consultants, we follow a standardized process to create comparability and transparency. We guarantee a reliable, software-based calculation of transports or the company carbon footprint (CCF) with high data quality. We offer guidance in evaluating the sustainability indicators and set up the appropriate climate protection strategy.
At the end of the process, we can help our clients to credibly communicate their commitment to sustainability and climate protection internally as an employee motivation and externally to business stakeholders and customers/consumers.
WAVES – THE IDEAL PARTNER FOR CLIMATE TRANSFORMATION
In contrast to most consulting agencies, WAVES offers the additional advantage of providing reliable values based on real data with its own Sustainability Management Platform (SMP), enabling the continuous management of company-relevant sustainability indicators.
In a personal demo we can showcase how to access sustainability data at any time through the additional use of the SMP, edit it and generate future calculations independently.
