The Sustainability Challenge: It’s now time to prioritise
Organisations need to rethink their business and operating models as the impact of climate change drives a shift in investor, market, regulatory, customer and employees’ behaviour and expectations. However, many are struggling to implement sustainability across their entire operations.
We believe there is a massive opportunity. Leadership must therefore make holistic sustainability transformation a core priority, by empowering and mobilising people and resources for execution.
We, at BearingPoint, have been advising clients for more than decade on sustainability issues, focusing on the key challenges they, their people, their customers and their suppliers face.

Companies must act now and not wait for regulation, which will most likely result in accelerated and costly decarbonisation of their production processes.
In the coming years, companies must meet the ambitious objectives involved in reducing their environmental footprint. To achieve this, they have committed to large-scale projects, often disrupting and evolving their business models to those based on new technologies.
