What a challenging area! Not only is the automotive industry one of the biggest sectors with regard to the number of its employees and value added, but also one of the main shapers of our Western societies. The car as a symbol for personal achievement, for power and wealth, and for taste and attitudes has gained enormous presence everywhere.
This seems to be changing dramatically now. We just don’t know the direction yet.
The major shifts we are currently seeing are in technology (e-mobility, hydrogen, fuel cells,.. ) and a strong change of mindsets concerning the necessity of personally owning a car. Shared economy models are thus gaining in importance, and as a second very strong driver public transport is setting a new pace in changing the framework conditions.
All this – combined with further social requirements – will additionally lead to major turbulence throughout the whole supply chain. From restrictions on resource extraction to alterations in the whole car services sector due to new technologies and vehicle requirements, the complete field of car production is subject to change.

What we offer

We diligently observe the changing requirements in the customer field, the developments in the technology sector,  and the political and – as a consequence – legal tendencies. This knowledge is the basis for our support in developing future strategies.

Sustainable sourcing in terms of availability and risks is an additional must and goes beyond the merely cost-oriented decisions of the past. A multi-criterial approach is necessary, taking into account additional aspects like environmental and social impact, human rights, corruption or critical materials as well as questions of sustainable transport.

The EU circular economy package as well as activities driven by the US Ellen McArthur Foundation require a specific corporate strategy for circular economy. denkstatt uses long-term experience in stakeholder dialog and national strategy development based on evaluating sorting and recycling systems and the optimisation of packaging recovery systems in terms of costs and environmental effectiveness (cost benefit analysis).
