Sustainability Training Resources From Celonis: Get the Ingredients for a Successful Sustainability Transformation

Sustainability, supply chain transformation and inflation are no longer discreet, secondary business concerns, but interwoven, top-of-mind issues. Companies are operationalizing sustainability to comply with increasingly strict regulations, drive supply chain efficiency and generate real returns on investment. And inflation is helping to drive the sustainability push.

Yet, as Janina Nakladal, Global Head of Sustainability at Celonis, told me, companies are often held back by a failure to harness existing data and break up organizational silos, as well as a failure to analyze operational inefficiencies, emission hotspots and supply chain risks in real-time and in the economic context of business execution.

"The key is to transform operations in a fast, minimally disruptive way, focusing on processes that lie at the heart of sustainability strategies, and find initiatives to start with that have a positive effect on the top, bottom, and green line," Nakladal said. "This way, businesses can achieve better sustainability and business outcomes simultaneously."

To do so, Nakladal said businesses need to examine their supply chain and its underlying processes, as it reaches every part of an organization and is essential to achieving sustainability goals. This requires the right tools. Process mining enables businesses to optimize their processes, balance objectives and become more sustainable.

In September 2023, Celonis Academy in conjunction with our Sustainability team hosted Academy Sustainability Month, a month of virtual live events focused on managing sustainability transformation. These webcasts will equip participants with practical insights and strategic solutions for a greener future.
