Franziska Singer


Franziska Singer has been working on sustainability for more than eight years, first with the Sustainable Procurement Team of ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability and then as a freelance consultant. With a focus on providing training for purchasers, politicians and students, her work as taken her all over Europe and all the way to Brazil and Australia. The product groups she has the most knowledge on are construction, textiles, timer and ITC. Her passion is using the power of purchasing to improve the impact of products along the supply chain with regards to social, environmental and economic factors. Certification and standards can be a valuable tool in this process, as is thinking in of the whole life cycle of a product in a circular rather than linear way.
