The problem: Zooming in on sustainable revenue

As part of its ESG commitments, Continental reports annually on its sustainability profile, including EU Taxonomy assessments. However, they face challenges including high demands on data availability and quality, ambiguous regulatory requirements, and high manual workload. 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.

Briink’s ESG document analyzer and advisory

ContiTech leveraged Briink’s AI-powered tool to scan large volumes of client data and assess potential Taxonomy eligibility and alignment. In addition, ContiTech received continuous support from Briink’s team of Sustainable Finance experts to review the outputs, and develop tailored improvement recommendation reports.

Here’s how I would describe the Briink team: cooperative, fast communication, flexible, open for any discussions, and up-to-date. We were able to grow together with them to find a solution tailored to our needs.
