The sustainability challenge: making it happen together
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.

Green is more than just the new black: it is the future color of retail. Sustainability is a crucial topic in retail, notably in the fashion industry, which is considered the second most polluting industry globally and has been criticized and urged to reduce its environmental and social impacts for many years. From sourcing products more sustainably to upstreaming traceability, improving operational efficiency and creating new business models, retailers have several levers to pull to bring about the necessary changes on a global level.
The premium electric vehicle manufacturer, Polestar, needed to get a clear view of its sustainability strategy and to prioritize initiatives, while aligning them to its global strategy. By leveraging sustainability expertise and best practices, BearingPoint helped Polestar to define a strategic roadmap that enables their supply chain to increase climate neutrality, circularity, transparency, and cultural inclusion for a green future.
