schlange-and-co

Founded in 2006, Schlange & Co (S&C) is home to an interdisciplinary team of 25 corporate and social responsibility consultants with specialist backgrounds in investment banking, business, economics, geography, communications and environmental and political sciences. The consultancy champions the sustainability cause by challenging traditional approaches and laying the groundwork for paradigm shifts. S&C has earned a gold-standard reputation for uncompromising commitment to CSR — and for refusing to engage in “green washing”. It has partnered with 170 clients around the world — many of them blue chips — and completed 550 projects. S&C works with multinationals and mid-sized companies across a range of geographies and industries, from agriculture and chemicals to telecoms and utilities. From offices in Hamburg and New York, S&C consultants work closely with clients to establish a resilient sustainability management plan. Consultant and client take a top-down approach to define the strategy, set targets and implement processes. A bottom-up approach covers performance verification, supplier auditing, product testing and educational training. Clients can choose from a suite of complementary services in the S&C product portfolio, which is divided into three CR consultancy areas: strategy and organisation, communication, and software and data management. The company systematically delivers advice using proven methods to achieve the highest level of quality and customer care. The CFI.co judging panel recognises Schlange & Co. GmbH, one of the first such consultancy firms in Germany, with the 2020 Best CSR & Sustainability Consultancy (Europe) award.
