A new chapter begins

for impact and transformation

The denkstatt Group joins forces with EY. As the leading sustainability competence center, together we are setting new standards in sustainability consulting – in our core countries in Central and Eastern Europe and worldwide.

denkstatt becomes EY denkstatt and is now part of EY’s Sustainability Services. As a member of the global EY network, we cover all disciplines of sustainability consulting, including trend and cross-cutting topics and international sustainability issues. This step marks the start of a new chapter in the fulfillment of our impact goals, to which we have been committed for more than 30 years.

EY denkstatt: A common mission for even more impact

From competition to companions: together we create added value at all levels. United in our vision and strategic direction, as well as with our high cultural fit, we lay the foundation of our mission: generating impact and sustainable value. Sustainable development requires strong partnerships – with this step, we at EY denkstatt are making a formal commitment that could not be clearer. In a joint talk, Christian Plas, Managing Partner and Co-Founder of denkstatt, Stefan Uher, Head of Assurance at EY Austria, and Gunther Reimoser, Country Managing Partner at EY Austria, discuss the process of convergence and the common goals.

Introducing EY's Sustainability Services

Our joint sustainability teams now form EY’s Sustainability Services as a leading competence center for sustainability. Together, EY and EY denkstatt have 120 experts available in Austria alone. As Austria’s largest sustainability consultancy and auditor, we are committed to the future-oriented transformation of the economy. The high dynamics, complexity and demand for innovation in the field of sustainability require broad expertise in related specialist areas. As a frontrunner, we offer multidisciplinary teams through close cooperation with other specialist areas at EY, e.g. from strategy, technology or legal consulting (in cooperation with EY Law – Pelzmann Gall Größ Rechtsanwälte GmbH). From now on, our clients will benefit from the holistic service portfolio with the maximum industry coverage that we offer across the board together with the EY network.
