Sapherior supports its customers in 5 interdependent areas that are increasingly influenced by sustainability developments. We consider sustainability to be a topic that is relevant to all business activities - from strategy to portfolio management.

Market Insights

The Practice Group "Market Insights" is the heart of Sapherior. Here we continuously process our specific technical and industry knowledge and offer companies and investors our structured expertise as senior advisors on technology and market-oriented issues, e.g.:

  • Market & Ecosystem Analyses
  • Mega-Trends, e.g., Sustainability
  • Regional Developments
  • Raw Materials
  • Competition Analysis
  • Target Screenings
  • Commercial Due Diligence
  • Strategic investment Decisions
  • Technology Assessment
Strategy Development and Implementation

The Practice Group “Strategy Development and Implementation” places the questions of the Top Management at the center of its deliberations. That might be a Board of Management perspective, but also a Business Unit’s view. Our many years of strategic experience make us a consciously critical sparring partner at both levels about questions, such as:

  • Strategic Positioning & Planning
  • Efficiency Improvement & Cost-cutting Initiatives
  • Business Model Development
  • Digital Transformation Concepts
  • Strategic Investment Decisions
  • Sustainability Positioning & Reporting
  • Support for Corporate Management and Operations
  • Rightsizing of Corporate Services
Re-/Organization and Change Management

The Practice Group "Re-/Organization and Change Management“ is about facilitating collaboration and making implementation successes tangible. Because every idea is only as good as it is lived in everyday life. For over 20 years we are providing sustainable organizational developments, e.g., through topics such as:

  • Restructuring after Strategic Repositioning
  • Cross-functional Process Changes & Implementation Guidance
  • Process Redesign and Re-engineering of Process Flows due to Changed Market Conditions
  • Post-merger Integration & Transformation Management
  • Change Management Guidance and Employee Involvement
  • Coaching of Top and Middle Management
  • Role-based Empowerment of Employees
Site Management and Development

The core of the Practice Group “Site Management and Development” is to develop site specific solutions matching the specific requirements of the individual production units. Since we at Sapherior have a lot of operational experience, we see services as profit centers, not as cost centers, thus, we ensure that our concepts are both practical and sustainable solutions for topics such as:

  • Site Transformation into Industrial-/ Chemical-/ Pharmaceutical Parks
  • Site Management Carve-out and Organization
  • Site Services Setup including Product Definition and Pricing Models
  • Site Development & Marketing, incl. International Scope and USP
  • Optimization of Infrastructure & Processes
  • Site Business Model, including Make/Buy Options
  • Site Target Search, Buy-and-Build Options
  • Capex efficiency / Engineering
Portfolio Management and M&A Deal Support

In our view, a company is a portfolio of continuously changing businesses. Accordingly, we provide support in this portfolio assessment as well as in the resulting measures. The Practice Group "Portfolio Management and M&A Deal Support" bundles our expertise in all matters, e.g.:

  • Pre-Due Diligence Advisory
  • Commercial Due Diligence
  • Technical Due Diligence
  • M&A Deal Advisory for Buy and Sell Side
  • Portfolio Analysis for Strategic Divestment / Investment Decisions
  • Market and Competition Analysis
  • Target Screenings
  • Technology Assessments
  • Regulatory Framework Analyses

When it comes to sustainability, our Practice Group of the same name comes into play. Our customers are not just implementers, but shapers and drivers of the specific developments. That's why our guiding principle is to embed sustainability in both strategic considerations as well as in day-to-day operations. Examples of our work in the sustainability area are:

  • Development of Hydrogen Downstream Concepts and Green Energy Supply
  • Support in Identifying the Right Sustainability Targets and Scopes
  • Definition of Consistent Reports with Goals lived in the Company
  • Support for Turning Sustainability Concepts in Operational Mind-sets
  • Development of Decarbonization Concepts
  • Implementation of Sustainable KPIs
  • Turn Sites into Eco-Industrial Parks
