Who We Are

We provide tailored answers to questions regarding the requirements of as well as possibilities and opportunities afforded by sustainability reporting, at all times closely aligned with international specifications like the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), the UN Global Compact, and the EU reporting obligation.

This results in flagship projects at the local, national, or international level that have a major impact both internally and externally.
