A Natural Evolution for KEPLER

Since its creation, KEPLER has been supporting its customers at the very heart of their businesses, thanks to its expertise in all operations. As a result, sustainability issues are of paramount importance for all our employees, regardless of the subject at hand. Extending and reinforcing our expertise in environmental, social and ethical issues for each business line is therefore a logical and coherent approach. This approach is one of the firm’s strategic development priorities, with the aim of delivering ever greater “responsible value” to our customers.

Our CSR Convictions

A responsible company can no longer simply focus on its operational performance without giving priority to the risks and opportunities associated with the necessary ecological transition.

Investors are no longer simply looking for short-term efficiency – they look at a company’s ability to transform itself by addressing environmental and social challenges.

KEPLER, a sustainable transition consultancy, supports its customers by systematically embedding sustainability parameters into all its engagements. To achieve this, KEPLER draws on its business expertise, covering all the operational components of the company.

In addition, KEPLER has developed specific expertise in sustainable transition. Our target: “Project a new, more resilient business model, taking into account the company’s ability to evolve and new market expectations”.

“Thanks to its end-to-end vision, KEPLER has developed a TSI (Total Sustainability Impact) approach. This approach enables a company to embark on a path of sustainable performance by systematically examining all the dimensions of its operating model, from design to the delivery of its products or services to its customers, with the aim of controlling and reducing its externalities.”

The KEPLER Approach

KEPLER deploys its approach around two modules:

  • Sustainable performance diagnosis: current-state and maturity level analysis by business line
  • Sustainable transition plan

The objective is to initiate a sustainable transformation along 5 axes:

  1. Better meet new customer expectations, innovate and differentiate from competitors
  2. Prevent risks and develop resilience
  3. Develop attractiveness and create a positive dynamic for employees (corporate project)
  4. Strengthen the sustainability of the company’s economic model (sustainable business)
  5. Anticipate growing investor demands (ESG) and future regulatory obligations (CSRD)
“The term ‘sustainable performance’ is a thing of the past. Today, when a company talks about performance, it only talks about sustainability. It focuses on the impact that its activities (design, production, distribution, services) have on its environment, on how to reduce this impact even further, and on the sustainability of its operating model and business in connection with its ability to control this impact.”
