Oliver Kenk, CFO @ Pointsharp

The compleet group is a merger of five companies in the HR-Tech sector with the goal to make workforce management and employee recruitment more efficient for our customers by using innovative technology. This was exactly the goal I experienced with Radial’s consulting approach. Through the intelligent use of technology and tooling by Radial, the project goal was achieved much more efficiently, and the use of internal and external resources was optimized for us as customers. This made project work fun for both sides. Thank you.

Elmar Weber, CFO @ compleet Group

We are very pleased with the financial work that Radial completed within one of our portfolio companies. Radial gave us a head start at the beginning of our holding period with respect to financial transparency & KPI based steering.

I can recommend the Radial team without hesitation.

ESG Reporting

Our commitment to sustainability included a comprehensive ESG materiality analysis to identify key environmental, social, and governance issues and assess their impact on our business and society. Radial is committed to achieving net zero emissions and to constantly derive measures based on our data-driven ESG controlling to underpin our social, environmental, and governance-related ambitions. We continuously measure our environmental footprint and social and governance KPIs using real-time information. The following data has been collected as a basis for our FY2023 reporting, representing the first full year reporting.

Environment: Total emissions (in mtCO₂e)

Our total emssions of 61.9 mtCO₂e, which equals 7.0 mtCO₂e per FTE (PY: 16.4 mtCO₂e, which equaled 5.3 mtCO₂e per FTE), are entirely Scope II or Scope III as we do not own assets such as buildings or vehicles. The majority of emissions (58.0 mtCO₂e) result from Scope III upstream activities, mostly business travel, purchased goods and services. Scope II emissions (3.9 mtCO₂e) result from purchasing electricity for laptops and other electronic devices.

The increase compared to the prior year from an absolute perspective is mostly related to the growth of the business and the team as well as the first full year of business. In addition, a major one-off effect relates to the construction of new office premises in Munich accounting for 31% of our total emissions. Excluding this effect, emissions per FTE would have been reduced to 4.8 mtCO₂e per FTE compared to 5.3 mtCO₂e in FY2022.

Through donations, Radial offset an equivalent of 64.0 mtCO₂e and therefore overcompensates net zero.

Environment: Travel footprint

As business travel accounts for the majority of our emissions, we are committed to further reduce travel whenever possible and choose trains or public transportation over other modes of transportation. Of 116,000 kilometers (PY: 34,500 kilometeres) travelled, 37.8% (PY: 41.5%) were covered by train or public transportation. The increased airplane use was due to projects where alternatives would have led to disproportionate effort.

Additionally, 108 hotel overnight stays (PY: 44) incurred and 465 individual business meals (PY: 236) have been consumed, mostly driven by business and team growth and the first full year of business.

Social

We achieved 5 of 5 stars in employee satisfaction. Around 379 hours were invested in Learning & Development. Every team member has access to individual coaching, promoting mental health and personal development. In customer satisfaction, we achieved a rating of 5 out of 5 stars based on a total of 14 projects rated by clients.

In FY2023, Radial did not invest time from the team into charitable projects, mainly due to high team utilization and not available capacities. In FY 2022, Radial team members invested 114 hours on charitable projects, mostly the Learning Lions initiative initiated by Prince Ludwig von Bayern. Radial donated a total of EUR 4,525 (PY: EUR 2,427) to charitable organizations as per the Radial Pledge.

Governance

Sustainability issues are firmly anchored in our corporate strategy and decisions. We have implemented risk management practices to identify, assess, and manage corporate risks continuously.

Legal regulations and internal guidelines are strictly adhered to. This is supported by a money laundering check for every new client and following the highest data protection and cyber security standards.

The salaries of employees and the remuneration of management can be viewed transparently on our intranet. A corresponding disclosure agreement is signed as part of the employment contracts. The management pay ratio amounts to 2.2 as per 31 December 2023. The whole team is involved in key decision-making processes in semiannual strategy workshops. Company decisions and updates are communicated to the entire team on a weekly basis. This promotion of trust and transparency is reflected in our employee satisfaction survey.

Going forward, we will continue to focus on sustainability-based risk management, strict adherence to compliance-related regulations, and the creation of a transparent and appreciative culture.
