Time to Sustain.
The pressure to act is now: within a decade we need to make breakthrough transformations at global scale on many sustainability fronts.
Be it drastically reducing our carbon emissions, transforming from a linear into a circular economy, regenerating our ecosystems, lifting billions out of poverty, ensuring fair standards in supply chains or using digitalization for positive social impact.
“It is abundantly clear that a much deeper, faster and more ambitious response is needed to unleash the social and economic transformation needed to achieve our 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.”

A Company Builder
for 10-times Sustainability Innovation
Deep in//Sustainability and Digital
We care about deep triple-bottom-line sustainability. We integrate social, economic and environmental perspective by design with 20+ years of experience. And we think and act digital. We build our own ideas and invite startup teams and corporate innovation teams to join.
Time is critical: one decade remains for major changes to be made. We focus on innovation and company building processes with fast time to market and measurable impact.
Empower each company to lift up sustainability performance
Company decisions influence majority of sustainability challenges. For example almost 70% of greenhouse gas emissions are related to company decisions.
Still only a small number of companies have systematic processes and tools to improve their sustainability decisions and performance. While investors, customers and the the public are increasingly asking for transparency.
score4more’s 10-times mission is to scale sustainability performance management to the majority of companies in Europe and internationally.
score4more is a sustainability performance improvement solution built on EU compliance reporting standards, allowing companies to report and assess their sustainability performance and use results for continuous improvement and as sustainability passport with investors, customers and the public.
Learn concrete sustainability measures in 5 minutes
Company decisions influence the majority of sustainability challenges. Today in major fields such as climate change, a vast number of best practices is already available, where 20 measures make 80% of the positive impact for a specific company
Still it is very complex for companies to identify what are the company-specific relevant measures in a concrete and actionable way. Search engine results are either to generic, not fitting or too complex information.
twenty4future’s 10-times mission is to drastically simplify and speed up the process, to identify, select and implement relevant sustainability measures for a company along major fields of the transformation.
It allows to identify measure gaps, evaluate measures, make own pledges, share the status with stakeholders, learn from peers having implemented best practices already and to have access to ready-to-use solution provider material for selection process.
Provide sustainability benchmarks for specific corporate functions
Benchmarking is a key instrument for companies to find areas to improve performance and catch up to benchmarks. Benchmarking has been widely used for costs, personnel or services.
For sustainability however, there is no holistic benchmarking method in place. Too often KPIs reported are not directly comparable due to lack of common definitions and measurement approaches. Companies lack a benchmarking instrument that helps them to compare apples with apples to improve their sustainability performance.
The benchmarking 10-times mission is to provide holistic sustainability benchmarks to a large number of companies making it easy to identify true performance gaps and areas to improve about all major transformation fields. The solution is the first of its kind to allow benchmarking sustainability in specific functions of the value chain and for specific fields of the transformation.
We developed the benchmarking as a pilot with atmosfair and EcoLibro.
Empower companies to develop individual sustainability strategies
Triple bottom-line sustainability is a complex task for companies with many action areas and potential measures to be taken into account for companies. Specific smaller companies are challenged to develop a program with a right priorities in material fields.
Solutions to analysis material topics and develop sustainability programs have been either too open and unstructured or to complex with long-lasting projects.
The N-Kompass 10-times mission is to drastically simplify the materiality analysis and sustainability program development process. With a 360° best-of-breed action areas and 70+ best practice projects it covers all relevant aspects a company needs to take into consideration. A structured, online tools allows to involve stakeholders and develop a sustainability program in a sprint-format in few times.
We developed the N-Kompass for the NWB Verlag and apply it in projects in cooperation with sustainable natives eG.
Having easy sustainability transparency on every product
Consumer buying decisions are crucial to change company offerings and related supply chains towards sustainability.
However consumers today cannot easily judge the full sustainability of any product. There are too many labels, focussing only on single aspects without international standards and comparability.
N-labels 10-times missions is to create a uniformed label which is expressing the sustainability of a product along 5 dimensions in-an-easy to digest way and to bring on the majority of consumption relevant products. N-label empowers manufacturers to easily assess the strategic sustainability of a product and use the label to communicate it to consumers.
