Sustainability Intelligence

Sustainability Intelligence is the core concept of our sustainability management approach

sustainability-intelligenceSustainability Intelligence means, in short, that DFGE generally uses data that is already available, to ensure a continuous improvement process and to be able to focus on the relevant things.

The aim of our support is to bundle the effort of taking part in several sustainability standards and rankings like CDP, UNGC, EcoVadis or GRI; this way, work has to be done only once and you can focus on the substantial, meaning on your sustainability management.

Sustainability management is important for every company, regardless of its size, sector or location. Each company should try to tackle its social, ethical and environmental impacts.

DFGE’s Customer Sustainability Platform

CSR management has become complex: A wide variety of stakeholders ask for information, clients demand participation in specific sustainability reporting, and the recording of company-wide CO2 emissions extends into the supply chains.

With the DFGE Customer Sustainability Platform, we put you, the customer, at the centre, because only company-specific CSR management is truly sustainable and can lead to carbon neutrality of products or the company.

The DFGE Customer Sustainability Platform acts as a central and intelligent hub for:

  • the life-cycle management of sustainability, where it lets you manage important data for acquisition and submission.
  • centralise and store all relevant data in a secure environment.
  • the calculations of Product and/or Corporate Carbon Footprints, which are increasingly based on SBTs and become dynamic through partial automation.
  • agile analysis and management of CSR activities and their impact on company-wide CO2 emissions.
  • the integration of your supply chains on your DFGE Customer Sustainability Platform.
