Impact

Every individual bears responsibility for how we live, how we treat each other, nature and society and everyone can make a positive contribution to achieving the UN SDGs together.

Holger Sigmund Management & Projects follows B Corp's "theory of change" and B Corp's global vision of an inclusive, equitable, and regenerative economic system for all people and the planet. A transformation of the economy is particularly important for change. Success must be redefined. We must not measure it by extensive growth, but by our positive social, environmental and (for all stakeholders) economic impact.

 

With TOURISM IMPACT Holger Sigmund and Clara Gulde accompany you, your team, your company or your organization to create more positive impact in travel, tourism and hospitality. In order to constantly improve the impact of themselves as a company, Holger Sigmund Management & Projects has started the B Corp Certification process in March 2022.
