Co-Founder & Chief Scientific Officer (m/f/x) (FYCF)

About us:

Our planet is currently witnessing two major crises: “The sixth mass extinction / biodiversity crisis” and the “the climate crisis”. Both crisis are largely fueled by non-sustainable production and consumption. However, more and more consumers are aware of their personal impact and are willing to contribute to rebuilding our planet by changing their consumption behavior in a way that reduces their negative impact. On the other side also more and more brands are bringing sustainably produced products onto the market. We tackle the opportunity to connect those two emerging groups by creating the world's leading platform that enables consumers to define their consumer values and provides them with information whether products are in line with her values or not. The solution provides recommendations for products that have a lower impact in terms of climate and biodiversity. By making the impact of products on biodiversity and climate visible, we will stimulate intense competition between brands to produce their products in a more sustainable way and help sustainable products to quickly gain market share.
