Portfolio Sustainability
Assessment (PSA) Services

Steer your product portfolio through the lens of sustainability and ESG.

Unleash the Potential of Your Product Portfolio to Accelerate Sales, Reduce Risk and Capture Market Opportunities

To ensure sustainable growth and business resilience, companies need to holistically assess their entire product portfolio, taking into account environmental, social and governance (ESG) aspects. The Portfolio Sustainability Assessment (PSA) enables businesses to achieve transparency in their products’ sustainability performance and provides a clear picture of sustainability concerns and drivers within the portfolio. In addition, the method offers insights for product communications, illuminating valuable differentiations for specific markets and creating new business opportunities. Sphera’s sustainability experts help your company develop and implement your specific PSA approach to systematically assessing and proactively steering your portfolio toward sustainable value creation.

Build Your PSA Approach
on Methodological and
Sector Expertise

The PSA method is based on the methodological guide published by the World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD) and helps companies systematically identify risks and opportunities related to sustainability issues in their portfolio.

Sphera’s sustainability consultants adapt the WBCSD’s PSA framework and sector methodology to your company and tailor them to your specific needs. Our methodological and sector knowledge is anchored by our experience as a contributor to the WBCSD Working Group. It’s also based on knowledge gained through our strategic partnership with BASF on their SustainableSolutionSteering® approach and through multiple related projects. Our experience will help you develop a PSA solution that fits your business precisely.

Increase Efficiency of the PSA Development Process

The PSA method offers companies several benefits, but implementation can be a time-consuming and resource-intensive process. Sphera’s experts ease the burden of the PSA development process and help your company:

  • Analyze sustainability requirements along your company’s value chain and define relevant sustainability criteria.
  • Evaluate and categorize the sustainability performance of your product applications in their respective markets (product-application-region-combination (PARC) level assessment).
  • Create action plans for portfolio optimization.

Enrich Product Development
and Product Strategy
with PSA Results

A systematic portfolio assessment serves as a starting point for active portfolio management. The PSA can serve as an early warning system for products that may be affected by regulations or negative market perception in the future. For these products, action plans need to be developed to manage risks and develop better alternatives. On the other hand, the position of the best performing products can be strengthened through targeted communication of their sustainability benefits.

We advise and support you in integrating the PSA results into overall management tools and sustainability strategies to increase the growth rate of your more sustainable products.
