On the 28th of November, denkstatt attended the Natural Capital Coalition (NCC) “Collaboration Day” – the annual event of the NCC bringing together its members and assessing state of play. denkstatt is a member of the Natural Capital Coalition’s Advisory Board and has contributed to the development of the Natural Capital Protocol (the de-facto standard for corporate natural capital assessments).
In the event, Michael Goebbels – Director Corporate Responsibility, Strategy & Reporting @ Metro AG – presented the project “Sustainable Value Creation”, which measures the net impact of Metro’s product assortment on the economy, environment and society across the entire value chain in all 35 countries in which Metro AG operates.
This project was jointly prepared with denkstatt and has been subsequently recognised as a Leading Practice Example in the food sector by RobecoSAM, who prepare the Dow Jones Sustainability Index. This contributed to Metro AG winning the leadership position under the DSJI food staples & retailing category for the 4th year in a row! Congratulations!
