Sustainability consulting: A holistic view of sustainability

What was once considered “nice to have” is now essential to a company's long-term economic success: Sustainability plays a central role in how business is conducted. The focus lies on how a company's business activities impact the environment and society, and how this shapes its business model. At the end of the day, sustainability is effectively a company's “right to play”.

Customers, investors and the general public are now interested in more than just a company’s hard financial figures. They also demand information that goes beyond financial reporting. They expect companies to take responsibility by identifying the ecological and social impact of their business model, and steering it with a focus on sustainable development.

“Sustainable business practices are essential today. Companies that want to compete in the future need to place a sharp focus on how their business activities impact the environment and society.”

Rainer Kroker, Partner, Sustainability Leader at PwC Germany

Recognition: The independent research firm Verdantix recognised PwC as a global leader in sustainability and ESG business services: “PwC offers integrated, end-to-end ESG and sustainability consultancy services.”

“Pathways to Paris” enables businesses to reach net zero in just three steps. We developed this freely available web-based transformation tool together with WWF Germany. It supports companies from ten sectors in specifying the details of their plans for climate-neutral transformation by 2045.
