About Etika

Practical solutions for sustainability

We support managing directors and sustainability managers in securing long-term company success, strengthening supplier management and enforcing human rights along the supply chain.

How ETIKA started

The ETIKA idea started with Veronica Rubio and Federica Suess, who agreed that the sustainability industry uses too many phrases that are often not understood, relies too much on idealistic concepts and ignores the realities of companies or employees in production not sufficiently taken into account. We wanted to change that.
