corsus at COP27: Life cycle assessment is the basis for many assessment approaches

Ulrike Eberle gave a short presentation on the interrelationships between True Cost Accounting (TCA) and Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) to reduce environmental impacts.
“A socio-ecological transformation of food systems is urgently needed. Life Cycle Assessment and True Cost Accounting show where priority action is needed: less animal-based food, more legumes and nuts, more social justice, less food waste and more sustainable agricultural production are the levers. Make sustainable choices easy choices!”

Article published by Julius Wenzig and colleagues on the engagement of controllers with sustainability

Sustainability controlling is a key area for advancing a sustainable transformation in companies in a systematic and fact-based manner. Empirical studies show, however, that controllers hardly deal with sustainability at all. In search of the reasons, Julius Wenzig, Anne-Katrin Nuzum and Prof. Dr. Stefan Schaltegger wrote an article that was recently published in the renowned journal Business Strategy & the Environment. The article is freely available in Germany via Wiley Verlag.

Interview – at the intersection of research and consulting

Since the beginning of 2022, Nico Mumm and Julian Quandt have been doing their doctorates in the BioVal research project at Bochum University of Applied Sciences in parallel to their work at corsus. The aim of the project is to identify and reduce the negative effects of food production and consumption on biodiversity and ultimately to transform them into positive effects – a topic that corsus has also been working on for a long time. This combination of research and consulting complements each other perfectly, because a cornerstone of corsus’ consulting is to incorporate the latest scientific findings and to always be up-to-date. On the other side of the interface, research can be aligned with applicability in mind, based on practical experience.
