The global need for businesses to contribute to sustainability has never been higher. At the same time, investors are increasingly looking at sustainability ratings and efforts when choosing their partners. Customers demand transparency to make conscious decisions. Global sustainability targets increase the pressure on countries to implement laws and regulations to ensure implementation of international agreements and that business take their share of the responsibility.
The chance to see these changes as opportunities and make them a part of your company’s competitive advantage is what will make the difference between the strong players today and those of tomorrow.

Sustainability Maturity Rating
Are you unsure where your organization stands today and how to address the challenges of tomorrow?
For this purpose h&z has developed a Sustainability Maturity Rating that provides a comprehensive report on your status-quo. The interview-based maturity rating identifies key areas for development to reach your company’s targets and meet regulatory requirements.
Strategy and targets
Make Sustainability part of your company’s aspiration and spread the word.
But what is the right scope and ambition for sustainability? How to reduce your carbon footprint, shape a circular economy and ensure social working standards?
How is Sustainability integrated in your vision, purpose and strategy?
We shape your strategy and develop roadmap based on your targets and KPIs.
Anchoring Sustainability in the operating model
Anchoring Sustainability is not only a task for a dedicated CR/Sustainability department. For Sustainability to be an integral part of your company it needs to be embedded in all layers of the operating model.
We support you in making Sustainability part of your daily work, from strategy to processes, from organization to governance, from tool solutions to people and culture you operate in.
Being a sustainable company means looking upstream towards the n-tier supplier base but also downstream towards sales, marketing and the customer base.
Only when the supply chain in full is striving towards the same targets your company’s business model can be truly sustainable. Smart tool solutions can enable your need for transparency and data while automizing the overall process.
We support you in sharing your vision and targets with your suppliers. We support you in identifying the right measures and levers to foster sustainable and circular business practices, to produce sustainable products, to build sustainable and circular supply chains.
Awareness and engagement
Both education and encouragement are key enablers to be successful. It requires an active push for cultural and mindset shift to make a difference. Showcase your Sustainability earnestness in daily decision making and behavior – for employees to adapt these habits in their responsibility areas.
Activities of all kinds foster this transformation, making sustainability part of everyone’s daily agenda – whether it is recycling in the office, or biking to work or challenging your suppliers.
We support you on your mission to raise awareness and generate commitment.
We support your ambitions in building up competencies or designing new ways of supplier collaboration.
