The challenging transition to 2 °C compatibility requires new methods and approaches - an innovative interaction between reliable disciplines.


Psychology in Communications

right. values communication rooted in climate change psychology as a crucial component of effective work on climate-related topics. Insights into the psychology surrounding climate change should not be communicated as an isolated area of study, but should shape the way we work with our clients and partners. The goal in the collaborative work with science-based targets is to impart skills that will be tremendously useful in advancing a strategy in light of understandable and expected resistance.

Administration for the Business Case


In our experience, attaining a 2 °C compatible business structure through the use of science-based targets requires more than the tasks and skills typically associated with sustainability managers. In our view, science-based targets are not another standard for sustainability, but rather an overarching tool for risk management. Accordingly we work with arguments for the business case of a 2°C-compatible model, which also supports a company's securing of key personnel beyond the sustainability department. Hannah Helmke

Legal Issues for the Big Picture

The business transition to a 2°C world is shaped by legal requirements in various markets and regions. These requirements work as instigators of free-market changes whose consequences have a direct influence on patterns of supply and demand. The early integration of legal analyses in approaching this situation can prove to be crucial, especially with complex legal situations. right. makes available the necessary skills.

Engineering Science for Product Development

There are major requirements for the functionalities of methods that manageably integrate operational figures with science-based emissions regulations. The performance of (environmental) technologies and their effects on social systems have to be integrated so that strategies for achieving ambitious emission goals can be met cost effectively. right. is able to set parameters for the current landscape of methods and apply themselves constructively in partnerships for the advancement of these technologies.

Mathematics for a Solid Foundation

Anchoring emission goals in science is based on the fact that climate scientists have defined a budget for greenhouse gases with economic activities that can be used to reach a 2 °C goal. Our mathematical capacities allow us to work soundly with fairly allocating such a budget to all economic participants. Our understanding of science-based targets as a tool for risk management allows us to use mathematics in the effective handling of climate-related opportunities and risks, which will be made transparent in the use of science-based targets.
