About us

ETIKA was born out of the desire to offer practical approaches for sustainability challenges. ETIKA was started in January 2021 by Veronica Rubio and Federica Suess. Since then, ETIKA was trusted with many consulting projects and workshops.

ETIKA is also started CSR-Weekly in 2021, which are weekly live-sessions, where professionals come together and share, exchange, discuss, grow and learn from each other.
