          "Plan A has enabled hundreds of businesses across the globe to promote a sustainable mindset in their company, while quantifying their sustainability and decarbonisation efforts.

          Co-Founder & CEO, Plan A

          "We are moving towards a world where clients, employees, investors and regulators integrate sustainability in their decision making processes. This means that non-financial performance (sustainability & ESG risks) is now a licence to operate. We built Apiday to help businesses identify their material sustainability topics, easily collect and assess their sustainability data - including GHG emissions, and improve their sustainability and ESG performance. We are therefore excited to partner with Personio and their clients to strengthen companies' sustainability/ESG performance and build more resilient businesses."

          How long does it take to get certified by our partners?

          How long it takes to get certified by our partners depends on the company and the industry. However, it generally takes about 3-4 months from the start of the process.

          What costs should customers expect?

          For the certification through our partners, license costs for the software, consulting costs for the CO2 reduction and costs for the compensation of the remaining CO2 emissions will be incurred. This price varies depending on the company and industry. The subsequent activation of Personio Green is free of charge for you and is rewarded with a 5% credit (If the certification was initiated via Personio Green).
