Conception of the Course:

Federica Suess is a trained social auditor and has 10 years of CSR experience.


In 2013, she started as a sustainability manager for the company DEPOT in Frankfurt, then worked as a product manager CSR for the auditing company SGS in Hamburg and founded ETIKA together with Veronica Rubio in January 2021.


During her time at SGS, she has developed 4 CSR courses offered through SGS Academy. In your first job at DEPOT, her task was to establish international labor standards among DEPOT-suppliers.


She worked closely with purchasing and already understood at the time how important it is to get purchasing on board for sustainability issues.


In her last customer assignment, Federica Suess moderated over 30 purchasing workshops. In doing so, she once again became once again aware of the importance of purchasing in the enforcement of labor standards at suppliers.


The two flag-ship training courses on human rights & labor standards have been specifically developed for purchasing and serve to combine sustainability with purchasing and to exploit the potential of purchasing in improving labor standards.
