Sustainability 

ENABLING SUSTAINABILITY END-TO-END

Challenges

CLIMATE RISKS, REGULATION, INVESTOR EXPECTATIONS

Sustainability has gone from being a buzzword to becoming one of the biggest challenges facing the automotive industry. Rising climate risks, stricter regulation, growing investor expectations, and greater demand for low-emission mobility solutions are all increasing the pressure, and all require innovative solutions.

The time for lighthouse projects and greenwashing is over. Today, automotive companies need holistic solutions along the entire value chain, from product creation and supply-chain design to the utilization phase of mobility solutions and the reuse and recycling of components.

We don't simply help our customers find their way to sustainable, green mobility; we want to inspire the automotive industry to reach a new level of understanding of what is possible by moving sustainability to the very top of our clients’ automotive agenda.

Approach

OUR FRAMEWORK FOR SUSTAINABILITY

At Berylls, our mission is to create a sustainable future for the automotive industry. For us this means considering the entire upstream and downstream value chain and the impact each stage of a vehicle’s life cycle has on people and the planet – as well as on the bottom line.

We call our approach to understanding and executing sustainability end-to-end the Berylls Loop. It is at the heart of all our work with clients and covers the entire automotive value chain. This starts with customer demand and sustainability targets and runs all the way through production and sales to the recycling of materials at the end of a vehicle’s life.

The Berylls Loop is as much about us as about our clients. We use it to embed sustainability in every unit of our group of companies.

We help our clients to identify needs for action, to define better capital markets and investor stories, and to react to public sentiment on sustainability issues.

OUR CONTRIBUTION TO SUSTAINABILITY

WALKING THE TALK

We believe that we can only be a credible partner to our clients if we align our own behavior, our organization and our culture with the principles of sustainability, letting those principles drive our decision-making. Sustainability starts on our own doorstep, this means that we ensure that whatever we do, we always engage positively with our society and our environment.

Carbon footprint reduction is an enormous challenge for many OEMs and suppliers and, as consultants and partners, we do not exclude ourselves from that challenge. Accordingly, we have set ourselves a science-based emission-reduction target in line with the goal to limit global warming to 1.5°C.

We believe we have a responsibility as thought leaders to commit ourselves to do not what is easy but what is necessary. That is why we have taken an ambitious path to reduce our own environmental footprint.
