Company profile

VERSO supports medium-sized companies holistically in their sustainable transformation with its software (SaaS) solution and services for sustainability management. Consulting and training in CSR reporting, -management and climate accounting make VERSO an ideal partner for corporate sustainability and ESG. Sustainability managers professionalize and digitalize their CSR management with VERSO or increase the efficiency of existing processes, above all the CSR reporting. In addition, VERSO supports companies on their path towards climate neutrality. VERSO GmbH, based in Munich, was founded by Andreas Maslo and Florian Holl in 2010 and is managed by the two founders together with Nuvia Maslo.

Market & Drivers

VERSO already offers a strong and established solution within the ESG market for companies in all industries. Hence, the company is ideally positioned to benefit from the EU CSRD (Corporate Sustainability Reporting Directive) in the mid- and long-term perspective. VERSO addresses the increasing need for digitalization and knowledge in various areas of sustainability in SMEs, given the directive for capital market-oriented companies issued in 2017 and the Europe-wide extension to smaller SMEs issued in 2022. In addition, there are further increasing regulatory challenges (e.g. Supply Chain Act), on which VERSO is already successfully advising its customers.

Nord Holding's contribution

Together with VERSO, NORD Holding envisages to further integrate software and consulting companies with a focus on ESG into a synergetic portfolio and create a pan-European ESG champion.

After discussions with a wide variety of interested parties, we made a very conscious decision for NORD Holding. An investor with deep roots in the German SME sector, a genuine desire for transformation and a transparent shareholder structure. In addition, NH's domain expertise in software, consulting and now ESG speaks for itself. We are incredibly excited working together to build the leading ESG software and consulting service provider in the German-speaking region.
