"For many companies, sustainability is a central aspect of their strategy and business activities. But the challenges we face cannot be tackled alone, such as the decarbonization of the economy, sustainably designed supply chains, sustainable finance, circular economy and responsible digitalization, to name just a few aspects. At econsense, we are driving these issues forward together. As Chairwoman of the Board, I would like to further intensify the practical exchange and constructive cooperation with stakeholders from all areas that we have experienced in the network. I am very pleased about the election and the trust that the econsense members have placed in me," said Birgit Klesper on the occasion of her election as econsense Chairwoman of the Board.

econsense is a cross-industry network of 39 leading, globally active companies and organizations in the German economy, who together want to actively shape the change towards a sustainable economy and society.
