The Mission VII:
Transformation - Be Sustainable!

The program is already finished.


Round seven! Sustainability has quickly moved to the top of almost every company’s agenda – in fact, the call for a sustainable transformation has never been louder. However, our corporate world lacks innovative ideas and practical solutions to finally make a change. If we want to meet our sustainability goals, we must redesign today’s approaches and if we want companies to transform, we need to empower their employees.

Out of almost 600 applications, we invited 9 talents from top European universities and German business schools to our program, who all gathered experience at major consulting firms, DAX 30 companies and/or public institutions and governmental organizations – they know the corporate world, and they are ready to transform it. Together, we will inspire, educate and activate the world, and path the way towards a more sustainable future.

What was the program about?

With our program "The Mission: Transformation– Be Sustainable!", we wanted to develop innovative solutions that contribute to the sustainable transformation of our corporate world. We did not focus on a specific section but on all pillars of sustainability and cross-sector solutions. Specifically, we have defined three areas we wanted to tackle. Each area was covered by one team of 3 talents:

  • Inspiration: we want to design a sustainability assessment tool for corporates to win over people's hearts
  • Education: we want to create a gamified sustainable education curriculum to provide relevant knowledge
  • Activation: we want to develop an ESG screening & portfolio management tool to start the right actions

Team 2 - Resolvert

Companies play a decisive role in the sustainable transformation of our world, but the gap between the intention and the implementation of sustainable actions blocks the way towards a more sustainable future. Importantly, change must come from within to have a lasting positive impact. It is, therefore, crucial to create awareness and knowledge among employees – this is where our teame ducation focuses on.

Team - 3 Sustainacy

The call for a sustainable transformation of our corporate world has never been louder: science demands and society expects that leading companies protect our planet and drive change to secure life on earth – they must transform themselves, find new structures, invent new products, and develop new processes. To support this transformation from within, Paula, Selina and Oriana develop a platform that helps corporates meet and track their sustainability targets: Sustainacy evaluates corporate goals, employees’ readiness, and the external environment to recommend the best implementable actions for carbon emission reduction.
