Sustainable economics is the foundation for the lasting success of companies and the free economy as a whole. To this end, EY is making a contribution that goes far beyond the legal instructions. Documentable sustainability should be contained in the DNA of each and every company. That's why, in addition to joining the UN Global Compact in 2008, the company has set up an operationally aligned sustainability management. Its corporate responsibility activities are concentrated globally on the three areas of entrepreneurship, education and environment. These are the three "E" of EY’s CR commitment. By taking a holistic sustainability approach, EY has also developed its own business unit with "Climate Change and Sustainability Services (CCaSS)", through which clients are supported both in an advisory capacity and in a review capacity in aligning their actions systematically and transparently to the principles of responsible corporate governance.
