What is the state of sustainability in companies?

Sustainability continues to gain ground in companies, shows the joint study with the German Association of IT Users VOICE e.V., in which nearly 124 IT and digital decision-makers participated. The topic is driven by corporate social responsibility teams and the approaching legal obligation.

  • The areas of "economy" and "social" make up the established triad of sustainability dimensions, with a slight lead over "ecology".
  • Sustainability finds its way into organisations via strategy and governance and thus also into (IT) purchasing. Sustainable sourcing still has room for improvement.
  • Ecological indicators are not (yet) firmly established in most organisations. Here, vision must be followed by actions.
