COLEP: “Working with customers to deliver comfort to consumers…”

Colep Logo Globe

COLEP is the leading European contract manufacturer for aerosol dispensers and pressure containers with worldwide production sites. As sustainability gains importance in customers’ value chain, a transparent breakdown of sustainability KPIs generates a substantial competitive advantage. The challenge of consistent sustainability management has been overcome by using cii.


Within the framework of redesigning COLEP’s sustainability strategy, a solution that lives up to the customer’s specific requirements had to be identified. Due to the company’s strong growth and it´s dynamic structure, a highly flexible solution was fundamental for them. Furthermore, COLEP’s fast-changing product portfolio called for an adaptable and agile reporting and KPI structure.

The Solution – Sustainability Management using cii

With cii – collect – integrate – improve, we determined a sustainability management solution that consistently meets COLEP’s requirements. Offering easy-moving flexibility, cii did not only present fast and elaborate results, but also developed a simple sustainability-data-collector into an efficient sustainability management tool. In addition with the integration of existing management tools, cii offered COLEP a quick, easy and automatic collection of data as a software-as-a-service solution.

Our Factory Footprint Collector transparently compiled and arranged the range of sustainability KPIs for each production site and effectively cleared the chaos of their Excel data acquisition. By integrating all data through an interface, cii additionally offered tracing the product-specific environmental impact for a portfolio of over 5000 products.

„The approach of CG Controlling is new to the field of sustainability management, but they have totally convinced us. At the same time, the concept has been successful for decades in the field of cost accounting. They integrated a slim but powerful control process for sustainability to our company. Our collaboration with CG Controlling has always been very creative and productive.”

As a result, cii enabled COLEP with an established database to link production planning with an impact forecast in order to create an easy status overview of their sustainability targets. In addition, the integrated database allows the instant impact evaluation of changed product compositions or product portfolios to intelligently steer the sustainable development.
