|Susanne Volz has been working as a freelance researcher and consultant in the field of sustainability for over 13 years. Her areas of expertise are circular economy and sustainable finance.|
She has an extensive academic background in law, finance and economics as well as in environmental science – and she is convinced of the success of a holistic approach.
At the start of her professional career, she calculated life cycle assessments, worked on BREF documents and created product criteria for the Blue Angel (German environmental label). Building on that experience, she then developed into an expert and consultant for strategic innovation projects in the circular economy with a focus on circular business models. For a number of years now, she has expanded her scope to include sustainable finance and ESG integration. Throughout her career, Susanne has shared her experience in countless workshops, as a lecturer and coach, and in presentations.
She has been a member of the Circular Economy Financing Expert Group since 2018, the EU-COM and has been supporting Climate KIC to develop and implement EU-wide circular innovation programs for 4 years.
Through her projects, she has gained a detailed understanding of the challenges the economy is currently facing. She is passionate about linking research and practice and helping companies, public authorities and research institutions to develop and implement concrete solutions.
