business intelligence for sustainable leadership

sustainability implementation


Zurich-based SolAvis is the continuation of SolAbility in a different form. SolAbility is a Korea-based sustainability consultancy  that has developed and implemented sustainability strategy and management systems for a number of Korean corporations.

Sustainability strategy and management tools developed by SolAbility have helped three Korean companies to become DJSI World sustainability super-sector leaders in their respective industry:


The Dow Jones World Sustainability Index is the most important corporate sustainability benchmark globally, annually evaluating the sustainability management and performance of the World's largest 2'500 companies. Only 19 of these 2'500 are considered "supersector leaders".


Mandates executed for corporate clients included design of  overall sustainability strategy, as well as development and implementation of specific sustainability management policies and tools, including  implementation of corporate-wide KPI tracking and reporting systems, risk management (both strategic risk management and project-related risk evaluation and management tools), ethical behaviour excellence and risk reduction,  environmental management strategy, data management, and energy/GHG emission reduction strategy, supply chain management systems, HR development management, stakeholder engagement, and external communication (integrated sustainability reporting).

The knowledge and expertise that has made 3 global sustainability leaders is now concentrated in SolAvis.

  • Other publications are focussed around ESG/SRI, and corporate sustainability.
