With our consulting services we embed sustainability into the core business of our clients.





Doing the right thing at the crucial moment with a good strategy

We identify the environmental, social and digital topics relevant to your business model and integrate them into your core business processes. In doing so, we take the entire value chain of your company into account – from the raw materials to your customers. 

Our strategic approach is fact-based, using proprietary, sophisticated quantitative and qualitative methods, such as a comprehensive impact measurement models or web-based stakeholder surveys.

Materiality analysis with estell

We combine the findings from impact measurement, stakeholder surveys, relevance assessment and other instruments such as a competitive analysis to separate the significant from the insignificant.

Impact measurement

A successful sustainability strategy is characterised by the right fields of action. We measure the environmental, social and economic impacts of your business model and determine in what areas measures can achieve the greatest success.

Stakeholder surveys

We identify your company’s relevant stakeholders and conduct stakeholder surveys. In this way, we create the basis for a fruitful and continuous dialogue with your stakeholders.

Relevance assessment

We evaluate the relevance and value contribution of sustainability issues for your company, e.g. by interviewing internal stakeholders. This ensures that your sustainability strategy is aligned with your business model and anchors sustainability in your core activities.

Human Rights Due Diligence

Violations of human rights, poor working conditions or environmental pollution generate high media attention and can lead to significant damage to reputation. We help you fulfill your entrepreneurial due diligence and get you ready for the NAP (German National Action Plan).

The future of successful business lies in the supply chain

Company decisions should be based on solid facts. The same guiding principle applies to corporate responsibility. We support you at all levels of creating transparency: from the creation of global transparency of your sustainability hotspots in the value chain, analyses of individual value creation sections or sustainability topics, to detailed analyses of individual production sites or products.

We rely on a defined methodology toolkit and our own experience with on-site assessments. Our know-how about all current standards and reporting formats enables a seamless integration into your corporate communication.

Identifying opportunities and risks in the value chain

Using innovative methods, we identify the ecological and social hotspots of your company and measure environmental impacts and social risks along the value chain through social and environmental foot printing. Our goal is to provide you with a fact-based basis for your risk management.

Social Compliance Services

Working conditions throughout the entire value chain, from upstream services to direct suppliers as well as in-house, should be systematically monitored and improved through effective social compliance management. Systain is also a trusted partner for assurance & verification processes, for example in the form of in-house assessments.

Environmental Services

We support you in quantifying the environmental impact of your business, for example by assessing the consumption of natural capital as well as the effects of air, water and soil emissions. Our Detox services place special emphasis on chemical management in value chains of textile and shoe companies.

Trainings for reducing environmental and social risks

We conduct sustainability trainings in all tiers of the value chain: in your company, at your suppliers or further upstream. We use both classroom training and web-based formats, such as webinars and e-learning, as well as additional homework assignments, templates and manuals.

In addition to imparting practical knowledge of environmental, social and digital challenges, we place particular importance on the integration of these challenges into specific business models on a day-to-day basis. Participants are equipped with methods for identifying causes of maladministration and learn how to translate their knowledge into continuous improvement processes.

Classroom trainings

We train companies and their suppliers through individual trainings, small group training or lectures and information events on site and on the topics most relevant to them.

Online trainings

Our innovative, web-based training formats, like webinars and e-learnings, are accessible from anywhere at any time and help us teach the essentials in a compact and cost-effective way.

Trainings concepts

Building on our experience, we support our clients in the development and implementation of individual training concepts and materials such as manuals, videos or VR applications.
