Sustainability controlling

Think Tank's topic of the year 2022/23: 
Sustainability controlling

On this page you will find regular updates on our new topic of the year.

The topic of sustainability with the dimensions environmental, social and governance is becoming increasingly important for future-oriented corporate management. Controlling is therefore required to take this increase in relevance into account and to support the transformation process into a sustainable company.

Sustainability controlling is therefore of great importance in supporting the implementation and rationality of sustainability management and in fulfilling the regulatory requirements.

The guide provides the following information on this:

  • Previous development and current drivers of sustainability management and sustainability controlling
  • Regulatory developments and potential in relation to sustainability
  • The nine central design factors for sustainable corporate management
  • Maturity model & practical examples from Bosch Automotive Electronics, DATEV, TRUMPF, Deutsche Post DHL and the consulting firm Deloitte

With the combination of basic knowledge, implementation recommendations and practical examples, this Dream Car Report is a complete basis for controllers who want to act as drivers and shapers of the sustainability transformation of their organization.
