digital sustainability


Our intelligent software solutions not only support a company's business performance, but also its global sustainability goals.

Our sustainability strategy

For us, sustainable business means making intelligent decisions that optimize corporate processes in such a way that all required resources are used efficiently. With our software solutions, we support more than 1,000 active customers worldwide in a wide range of industries. When developing our products, we therefore not only have our customers' productivity in mind. We develop our software systems in such a way that they also have a positive impact on social and ecological aspects.

Slowing climate change

Digital decision-making helps us use our precious time effectively

Climate change is at the top of the agenda in many companies. Rising CO2 levels and new standards like GLEC accelerate climate-friendly activities. Many companies know their carbon footprint and have defined strategies to achieve operational climate neutrality. Pioneers even strive for “lifelong” climate neutrality. Many of them differentiate between three strands of action:

  • Reducing CO2 emissions
  • Avoidance of CO2
  • Removal of CO2 from the atmosphere

Digitalization makes an essential contribution to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions. Every mile not driven saves CO2. Digital decision-making already enables, for instance, the calculation of climate-optimal truck routes or optimized in-plant transports. In airport logistics, for example, airlines use intelligent software to optimize their ground processes and thus save CO2 and paraffin. There are still a lot of potential improvements that can be enabled.

Accelerate the circular economy

Effectively avoid waste with digital decision-making expertise

The EU Green Deal identifies the circular economy as an important driver in achieving a sustainable economy and in the fight against climate change. It is about avoiding waste in industry and commerce, recycling waste, and extending product life cycles.

The Ellen MacArthur Foundation identified three principles of the circular economy:

  • Regenerating nature
  • Designing-out waste and pollution
  • Keeping products and materials in use as long as possible
Beschleunigung der Kreislaufwirtschaft

Digital technologies are essential tools for establishing a circular economy. Digital decision-making is already being used, for example, to reduce food waste through demand-stimulated production. In addition, large amounts of cardboard waste are avoided by intelligently keeping reusable containers in circulation. Machine running times can also be significantly extended through data-driven maintenance (predictive maintenance).

making institutions trustable

Digital decision-making helps fight financial crime and build trust

Fighting illicit financial flows and fraud in the financial sector is anchored in Goal 16 of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Money laundering and the associated financing of illegal arms and human trafficking must be confronted. Financial institutions are increasingly being held accountable for this. As trustworthy institutions, they must: 

  • Implement reliable fraud prevention measures
  • Report money laundering and financial crime to government institutions
  • Prevent corruption and promote compliance (good governance)
making institutions trustable

Digital technologies based on fuzzy logic and artificial intelligence successfully reduced financial crime in banks and insurance companies for years. Machine learning methods can also detect changing behavior patterns and thus help prevent corruption, fraud, and money laundering. Fraud and financial crime prevention are gaining importance due to the increasing digitalization of the financial sector.
