The problem: Assessing large volumes of unstructured documentation within supply chains for ESG information

As part of its ESG commitments, Continental reports annually on its sustainability profile, including assessments of the sustainability of its supply chains and percentage of eligible green EU taxonomy revenue. However, they face challenges including high demands on data availability and quality, ambiguous regulatory requirements, and huge manual workload screening unstructured supply chain documentation. In 2021, Continental officially reported 2.9% Taxonomy-eligible revenue.

ContiTech, a group sector of Continental Group, is a global supplier for the automotive and industrial applications industry. ContiTech is known for its forward-thinking approach to sustainability and for pioneering environmentally friendly and intelligent products and systems for the automotive industry, railway engineering, mining, agriculture and other key industries.
