Manufacturing Industry

For practically every producing organisation the rapid change of the business environment is a crucial challenge and demands a serious and quick response. Welcome to the VUCA world (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous)! What is changing? Customer requirements, available technologies, the amount and detailed nature of information, environmental conditions – and of course with all this: the business environment, partners, suppliers and customers. This leads to a distortion of business models and – connected with it – the emergence of new entrants even in very traditional and well-established sectors. Ownership of hard assets is no longer a guarantee of market position; and possessing data and information might in many cases topple long-term champions.

What we offer

denkstatt’s role in working with businesses has also changed in this scene and we are becoming more and more (1) a provider of better information for business decisions, (2) a facilitator for development processes and (3) a mediator for unorthodox and unexpected solutions. We provide this support for companies on a process level and with in-depth expertise in our special areas of sustainability.


Our Services

We support our clients in making their operations more sustainable and in creating long-term value. In particular, we try to create sustainability/CSR reports as a management tool that support the development of a solid sustainability program and related actions and to establish a sustainability strategy, specific goals and an action plan as well as measurable key performance indicators.

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.

Practically all businesses are facing severe changes in their business models. Be it the client structure, be it the ways to communicate, the requirements of their stakeholders – major changes are lying ahead. One of the main and crucial drivers recently has been decarbonisation. We develop ways to leverage business opportunities with decarbonisation strategies. Read more

How do you engage with your stakeholders? Have you ever thought about who your stakeholders are, who you need to inform and when? How can you find out what your customers, suppliers, employees and neighbours expect or want of you, and what they don’t want? How can you harness your stakeholders’ knowledge to create added value for everyone with a stake in your business? We offer the support you need in implementing a stakeholder management system, including help with defining issues and objectives, and designing the process of communication with the relevant constituencies.

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). Linking waste management and secondary resource users is an additional outcome. Read more
We offer the integration of management systems for quality, environment and energy, based on the international ISO standards 9001, 14001 and 50001. When integrating these we make sure they are’ practical and goal-oriented. We understand your business and we adjust to it when integrating such a system, instead of the usual practice of adapting the existing processes to the standard. The result is a good basis for integrated sustainable management and achieving results. Read more
