We believe sustainability is a process of continuous improvement. It requires a holistic approach based on a proven business case.
Does your organization want to contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals?
We frame your business goals in context of the UN SDGs and help define measures for implementation.
Is your company now obligated to disclose non-financial and diversity information to fulfill new national reporting regulations across Europe?

We assist you in answering questionnaires, analyze the need for action, and advise you in the implementation to improve your sustainability performance.
Are you planning to develop or refine your sustainability strategy and/or business strategy based on a materiality analysis matching your company’s status quo?
Status quo analyses with or without involving stakeholders, strategy workshops, or implementation planning - we know the do's and don'ts and support you in identifying the business case for sustainability.

The publication of the cross-industry Code of Conduct by ZVEI and VDMA in 2022 was, on the hand, a clear commitment to sustainability, and, on the other hand, an important step towards standardizing sustainability requirements among member companies and their suppliers.
S&Z developed the accompanying tools for the implementation of the Code of Conduct. The guide and training materials are available free of charge to member companies from the German Electro and Digital Industry Association (ZVEI) and the association of Germany’s engineering industry (VDMA).
