Fields of Action

The Climate Transformation Compass MoVE Core Competence covers all areas along the whole time line of organisational development. In total there are four levels plus an entry level.

The entry level 0 contains, if required, some basic prerequisites on the way to climate transformation. Levels 1 and 2 put an emphasis on the optimisation of the current state.

At level 3 and 4 it is about going beyond the known horizon and breaking with known structures and patterns. In this sectiuon, effort increases exponentially and here lies the biggest amount of opportunities for the future.

It is not about reaching level 4 in all areas. It is normal that any orgainsation will hit some limits within the current state. But the gained knowledge will push some limits and will be valuable for future decisions and future opportunities.


The Climate Transformation Compass MoVE Core Competence is conducted based on the individual requirements of every location. Hereby concept- and implementation maturity is evaluated separately. The two results are afterward multiplied to gain credits for each category.

This approach ensures that every concept has a real implementation as a consequence and that every implementation follows a guided strategy.

The final picture derives a holistic picture including all relevant criteria and its dimensions. Out this, improvements and measures for the corresponding locations can be determined. The resulting credits must not be compared within different locations, but only within one location between one time period to another. Comparisons between different locations do not contain any relevant information since circumstances are always different.
