We confront an emotional topic with scientific standards.

Sonja Honigmann Corporate Manager

As a working student, I support the Corporates Team in carrying out Climate Impact Analyses for customers from the real economy. In addition, I am writing my master’s thesis on the subject of “double materiality”. The concept assumes that the risks that arise from a company’s contribution to climate change (inside-out) interact with the risks that arise from climate change for the company (outside-in). The XDC Model can map these complex relationships by measuring the climate performance of a company under various scenarios and then translating it into opportunities or risks.

My climate change wake-up moment was the sadly realistic apprehension that when my son reaches adulthood, the Arctic could be ice-free during summers. Therefore, I find it both motivating and enriching to face the emotionally challenging topic of climate change with scientific standards, professionalism and expertise – the constructive way out of the dilemma posed by despair vs resignation.
