Guidance in sustainability

Our Vision


Making sustainability common sense.

The climate crisis is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. We will only be able to solve it collaboratively. Our start-up aware_ The Platform aims to build an operation system that helps organizations and individuals to make better and conscious decisions.

We provide guidance to companies as well as consumers on their path to sustainability. Both businesses and individuals understand on a rational level the need to live more sustainably. However, many approaches seem very radical at first glance and involve a major change in behavior. 

The need for genuine, transformative sustainability is more serious than ever.

Founders

Thereafter, she has worked at Nike in Brand and Retail Marketing before joining aware_ with the goal of guiding companies towards a sustainable future.
