  1. 1. Dear Readers! Year 2014 at the ICV was dedicat- ed to three ICV top topics. One of them was sustainability. Sus- tainability is a relevant interest area in public transport, but not all public transport compa- nies see importance of sustainability as a component of their organisational strategy. You can read an article translated from German on the next pages of the Bulletin. Another crucial area was Big Data: in the last three months the topic appeared in e few ICV conference: for ex- ample at the 12th Controlling Competence Stuttgart Prof. Dr. Björn Bloching basing on his book "In Data We Trust: How Customer Data is Revolutionising Our Economy” presented how patterns are detected in Data and how this knowledge can be used. And at the Controlling Summit supported by the ICV in Poland Anwar Mirza, Financial Systems Director at TNT Express inconsistent definitions and business rules lead to prolonged decision making. Accurate and complete Master Data (used in the whole company in the same way) tables are pivotal pre-requisite for KPI reporting. In Autumn 2014 we also had new winners of ICV awards: Green Controlling Award was given to two companies STABI- LO and Takata AG. Controlling - Newcomer Award received three graduates from Germany. And in January 2015 ends the time for all those who would like to compete for the Inter- national Controlling Award. November and December was full of ICV events with interna- tional speakers: you can learn more about the conferences in Croatia, Russia and Serbia in this issue and regularly on our Homepage. And the anniversary new year (40th birthday of the ICV) starts with a little delay but at once with two big con- gresses in April: we kindly invite you to think about our propo- sitions to broaden your horizons! For the New Year we wish you much happiness in private and proffessional life!

  2. 2. ICV Bulletin | December 2014 Green Controlling Award 2014 awarded to STABILO and Takata AG The Péter Horváth Foundation and the ICV select the most innovative and effective controlling solutions for implemen- ting environmentally oriented strategies, programmes and projects. Stuttgart/Munich, December 2, 2014– The Green Control- ling Award 2014 has been awarded to STABILO Interna- tional GmbH for its programme Controlling as a Busi- ness Partner for Sustainable Corporate Management and Takata AG for its programme Maximise Innovation to Minimise Environmental Impact. On November 27, Péter Horváth, the chairman of the jury, presented the EUR 10,000 award, which was donated by the Péter Horváth Foundation, in the presence of Siegfried Gänßlen, Chairman of the Board of Managing Directors of the International Controller Association (ICV), at the ICV's 14th Annual Controlling Competence Stuttgart - CCS 2014 conference in the IBM Forum Ehningen near Stuttgart. The winners then presented their solutions at the CCS plenary session to an audience of more than 150 controlling experts and managers. STABILO: Controlling as a Business Partner for Susta- inable Corporate Management In order to focus the company's sustainability efforts, in 2009 the company's executive management defined specific su- stainability goals as part of its Strategy 2014 initiative. As a business partner of both management and the operating units, the Controlling department was called upon to integra- te into the company's daily processes the requirements derived from the sustainability goals. The green controlling solution that resulted had three components: 1) Support the (further)development of the STABILO susta- inability programme; 2) Create transparency about programme results and re- port on them; 3) Support the sustainability programme from a process- integration perspective. The jury recognised several innovative aspects in the solu- tion. Among others, they included the fact that Controlling was integrated as an internal advisor for all processes, while the specialist departments worked autonomously to imple- ment their projects. All three dimensions of sustainability – economic, environmental, social – are viewed holistically, which creates transparency about their interactions. The green controlling solution has been integrated into the exi- sting controlling processes as an essential foundation of STABILO's sustainability programme. An important premise in the overall initiative was that the controlling of the susta- inability programme must not lead to any additional or paral- lel controlling processes. Instead, existing budgeting and reporting processes were expanded to include sustainability goals. Only the controlling measures used for the ongoing monitoring of the sustainability initiatives were rebuilt. In addition, the green controlling solution has helped to boost employees' identification with the issue of sustainability. Through the sustainability strategy, the publication of goals and measures as well as continuous reporting, the employees of all STABILO units feel that they are involved in the process. In fact, there have been many good examples in budget discussions as well as sales and marketing meetings that have been copied from other departments, or taken and then adapted for a new de- partment. This created a momentum of its own across all of the company's units. Several key successes have been achieved since the begin- ning of the sustainability programme in 2009. The green con- trolling solution also made these successes visible, which is © International Controller Association ICV | Poznań Office From the left: Dr. Dan Tulvan, Director Manufactoring, Arad (RO), Jürgen Volk, Manager Controlling Steering Wheel EMEA, Jörg Henry Dinkat, Director Con- trolling Global Steering Wheel & FI/CO Office EMEA – alle Takata; Péter Horváth, Head of the Jury; Angelika Henkel, Head of Controlling, Stabilo Inter- national, Martin Reim, Managing Director Schwanhäuser Industrie Holding; Lucian Lusca, Manager General Service, Takata Arad (RO); Siegfried Gänßlen, Head of the ICV Board) a major reason why sustainability remains an integral part of STABILO's corporate philosophy. Takata AG: Maximise Innovation to Minimise Environ- mental Impact Takata Corp., a Japanese company with its headquarters in Tokyo, is a global manufacturer of automotive passenger protection systems (annual sales: EUR 4.1 billion, about 45,000 employees worldwide). Takata AG has consolidated its European activities at its headquarters in Aschaffenburg. Takata's award-winning green controlling solution involved taking the company's traditional key performance indicator (KPI) system and expanding it to include newly developed metrics and a higher level of detail. “Green MBOs” (management by objective is the company's global variable remuneration system for managers) were implemen- ted into the target-setting system, namely: minimize impact on environment, limit potential of ecological hazards and risks, and rational materials consumption. The target-setting system was then connected with the KPI reporting. Takata considers “green projects” to be any projects which protect the environment, conserve energy or avoid environ- mental risks. Controlling supports and prioritises these “green projects” by providing cost-benefit analyses, resear- ching data and tracking results. The green controlling solution, which enables Takata's Con- trolling department to act as an innovator and driver as well as a “networker” between organisational units, uses existing resources and infrastructure in the company. Takata delibe- rately decided against establishing an additional green con- trolling department, and instead took the approach of integra- ting the issue into the daily responsibilities of the Controlling department. This also involves using the existing reporting structure in SAP. Takata's Controlling team acts as a mode- rator and sparring partner, for example, in discussions with the manufacturing divisions. Takata refers to a series of positive economic and environ- mental outcomes that have resulted from the solution, inclu- ding significant cost savings, especially with regard to expen- ditures on energy: 19% lower costs despite a 10% increase in production volumes. Increased awareness and clearly defined responsibilities among the stakeholders in the va- rious divisions are also counted as successes. In addition, Controlling now enjoys a higher level of process strength in both the daily and the project business. The company has even experienced a wave of innovation through the prioriti- sed support of its “green projects”.

  4. 4. In the end of November in Warsaw, Poland, in the presence of Prof. Jerzy Buzek (prime minister of Poland in 1997 – 2001 and president of the EU Parliament in 2009 – 2012) the 7th annual meeting of the biggest Polish family companies took place. After 25 years of economical and political free- dom the owners discussed the most important experiences of building up the businesses and the challenges of the near- est future. One of the most discussed future task was the process of succession – the area of interest of Dr. Adrianna Lewandow- ska, ICV Board Member, and her team for many years. The team prepared a “succession tool box” for SMEs that want to start the process as soon as possible. The tools worked out in this project were also acknowledged in the world as very innovative. Prof. Buzek congratulated Dr. Lewandowska on her great work results and stressed how important such projects are for Poland and whole EU. Family businesses being often focused on building their val- ue in the long term, must increase their flexibility. Their stra- tegic decisions are based on the values of the company founder or owner which is why it is interesting to find the an- swer to the following question: how to combine the traditional style of management which is faithful to tradition and family values with a very clear challenge of maintaining business agility?
