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.
Together with WWF Germany and Systain Consulting, corsus is working on the project “Lieferkette und Biodiversität” (“Supply Chain and Biodiversity”) for the German Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN). Within the project, a tool is being developed to support particularly SMEs in tracking and minimising biodiversity risks along their supply chain.

Their articles investigates how sustainability management accounting considers the corporate context and contributions to sustainability transformations beyond corporate boundaries.

Digital advertising is on the rise, but the climate impact of digital advertising has been poorly studied. For example, net sales of digital advertising in Germany have more than tripled in the last 8 years. On behalf of the green electricity provider LichtBlick, corsus has now investigated the greenhouse gas emissions of digital advertising measures.
On 22 September, the European Federation of Food Science and Technology (EFFoST) organised the online seminar ‘Sustainability Assessment of the Food Chain’. The seminar attracted well over a hundred interested participants. The introductory lecture was given by Dr Ulrike Eberle of corsus.
