Schlegel und Partner is climate neutral

24 January 2020

Schlegel und Partner – Your Market Insighters – has been active in identifying market opportunities for innovations in the fields of environment and sustainability for many years. Now we want also contribute to the drive for global climate neutrality, by taking responsibility for our own carbon footprint.

For the term 2019/2020, we will be climate neutral. It is our aim to avoid unnecessary, reduce existing, and compensate unavoidable carbon emissions.

As a first step, we invested together with ClimatePartner in two environmental and energy related projects in Peru (efficient cooking stoves) and in DR Congo (hydropower plant in the biotope of mountain gorillas to reduce the usage of wood as charcoal) to compensate the 250 tons of carbon emissions induced by us this year. Both projects are certified by Gold Standard (GS) and Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) respectively, featuring rigorous environmental and social safeguards.

We believe that carbon emission compensation is only a third best option – after avoidance and reduction. For a period of transition in which alternative mobility and energy concepts are just about to evolve, compensation is however meaningful to considerably reduce carbon emissions where it is possible and economically most feasible and to become aware of our ecological footprint.

Besides compensating carbon emissions, Schlegel und Partner will take further actions to avoid unnecessary and to reduce existing carbon emissions. For example, we will check options to reduce energy usage for heating, cooling, lighting and IT, carefully choose appropriate modes of transport and evaluate options to source green electricity.

Think outside the box

Not macht erfinderisch – SuP hilft Kunden während der COVID_19 Krise neue Absatzchancen zu identifizieren

Wie Automobilzulieferer neue Chancen nutzen.

Die aktuelle Situation legt weitestgehend die Wirtschaft lahm. Bei vielen Automobilzulieferern steht die Produktion immer noch – zumindest teilweise – still. Wichtig ist es jetzt, neue Absatzmärkte und Potenziale für die vorhandenen Kapazitäten, zu finden.


From problem solvers to worst in class

The unhappy ending of specialty films and how they could be redeemed.

Specialty films have been the problem solvers of the packaging world in the latest years. In the recent past, if you wanted your food to remain stocked and unaltered at the supermarket –and then home- shelves for months you would have found the perfect solution in such films. Their strength? They combine different barrier properties of different materials: why should you choose between many materials and discard precious properties when you can use them all?


Customer Interaction

Der stabile Draht zum Kunden als Erfolgsfaktor für post-Covid-19

Covid-19 wirbelt nachhaltig unser Leben, unser Geschäftsverständnis und unser Vertrauen in bestehende Strukturen durcheinander. Das erfordert Maßnahmen, die bestehende Beziehungen bestätigt, bestärkt und voranbringt. Denn eins ist sicher: Miteinander reden hilft! Dies gilt gleichermaßen extern in der Kommunikation mit Kunden und Stakeholdern, wie intern mit den Mitarbeitern.
