Digitisation, demography, sustainability, mobility, urbanisation: Megatrends challenge conventional business models. But they also open up new opportunities. Future-oriented consulting means adopting a 360-degree approach from the outset and evaluating the individual aspects of complex interdependencies. It is digital, sustainable, innovative and cost-efficient. 

Do you want a consulting partner who understands your core business and the characteristics of your sector and your market? But one who also asks critical questions that promote reflection and motivation? We bring our sector, process and real estate know-how to the table – and put you on course for future success.  

Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, Bonn

The Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development is Germany’s first climate-neutral federal authority. Drees & Sommer sustainability experts assessed the buildings, determined the carbon savings potential, and developed optimisation solutions.

Thyssenkrupp AG, Essen

The thyssenkrupp group is professionalising its Corporate Real Estate Management. The scope of the project covers capturing data on all the group’s properties (owned, leased, etc.), optimising their use and cost, minimising risks, and gradually transferring the associated processes to an integrated Global Shared Service model. Drees & Sommer supported the client with a range of subprojects, including the structure and organisation, and part of the operational implementation of the global project.


Sustainability: Future-oriented consulting addresses sustainability-related topics. Measures throughout the entire value chain lead to reduced energy consumption, a climate-neutral or climate-positive footprint, and a Cradle-to-Cradle-inspired approach to the use of materials.

Digital: The digitisation of core processes requires special skills. Future-oriented consulting can identify the skills required and bring them into the company. Consultation aims to achieve the optimal mix of digital and analogue, and of high tech and low tech.

Economic: There are countless factors that make organisations and processes more efficient. Future-oriented consulting takes account of all of these and recommends those that are suitable. Our teams work together with our clients to implement them, using our specialist expertise and the ability to win the support of the stakeholders involved. 

Innovative: Innovation is a key focus of future-oriented consulting. It helps established companies identify their blind spots. It brings start-ups and established companies together, thus promoting new and promising business models.
