Research and Consulting

We help our partners ask the right questions about corporate responsibility, develop strategies, and work alongside them to implement these strategies efficiently.


Economic, technological, and social conditions change rapidly, along with the challenges for dealing with socially relevant topics. Questions to be addressed include: How can new legal reporting requirements or standards be implemented? What new sustainability issues does “Industry 4.0” create for companies? What innovation opportunities are there for industries and individual companies? To answer these and similar questions, we conduct application-oriented research with and for companies with projects that take between six months and three years to complete.
