I have worked for almost 18 years in the intl. sporting goods industry lately as GD for Sustainability & Compliance leading a global team of 23 experts. Educated as a chemical scientist with a focus on environmental chemistry I focussed on doing things differently to a create a better world to live in as this was always my goal. So it's not a surprise that sustainability became my focus.
The CSR program of PUMA was awarded in 2002 by the German Network of Business Ethics. In 2010 PUMA became the DJSI index leader and won the German Sustainability Award for its strategy. Instead of confrontation in the relationship with NGO’s I set up the Multistakeholder Dialog Talks at Banz running for 14 consecutive years.
Under my leadership we developed the first ever E P&L account changing the way of accounting while including and monetizing environmental impacts.
I am a highly experienced, influential and visionary expert in sustainability with a focus to the added value for the business.
I have a proven record on delivering corp. sustainability programs and strategies embarking sustainability already at the beginning of major business ideas.I have facilitated environmental KPI supply chain programs saving hundreds thousand $. I have proven ability to network and engage with stakeholders independent form borders and languages.
I am a Member of the steering committee “Science Platform Sustainability 2030” in Germany which is under cross-ministerial and Federal Chancellery supervision developing actionable solutions for transformation processes for a more sustainable society.
