Soil & More Impacts is a Hamburg-based sustainability consultancy for the food and agribusiness sector with a focus on climate, soil and true cost accounting at farm and supply chain level. Since 2007, Soil & More has been assisting global leaders in the food and agriculture sector in the development, implementation and documentation of sustainability projects for the cultivation of a wide range of raw materials, with small and large-scale farmers, organic and conventional.
With the successful merger of Soil & More Impacts and sustainable AG, denkstatt group has not only expanded its footprint on the German market, but also gained 14 additional experts who will contribute their knowledge in the fields of climate strategy, sustainability accounting, sustainable agriculture, materiality analysis, LCA and CO2 footprinting in the future.
The consultancy team of Soil & More was fully integrated into sustainable AG with the completed acquisition on 24.03.2022 with the plan to further expand it in the future.
Growth in Germany and strengthening of position in core markets
The focus of the merger is on growth and new consulting services for the food and agricultural sector – and thus also on renewable raw materials. The aim is to bundle competences and to integrate Soil & More into the denkstatt group in the best possible way in order to be able to use synergies and to create sustainable added value in the long term. Managing directors Tobias Bandel (Soil & More Impacts) and Jan-Marten Krebs (sustainable AG) spoke of an “important milestone for the further development of the group” at the time of the takeover. “The portfolio of Soil & More fits perfectly into the portfolio of sustainable AG and into that of the entire denkstatt group. The merger therefore strengthens our position in Germany on the one hand and beyond that in all our core markets.
The growth enables the group to act even more efficiently on the global and dynamic market and to accompany international companies on their journey into a sustainable future in the best possible way.
“Today more than ever, it is important to show that regenerative, sustainable agriculture is the most ecologically, socially and economically sensible option for people and the environment. I am pleased that Soil & More has found a strong partner in denkstatt group to continue working ambitiously, pragmatically and professionally towards this goal,” says Bandel.
“We are pleased about the colleagues we have gained and their competences for the entire group and about being able to offer an expanded service portfolio,” reports Jan-Marten Krebs.
