Conference Moderators

Passionate for a Sustainable Future

The 10th International Conference on Life Cycle Management will be moderated by two truly passionate advocates of a sustainable approach, each dedicated to different aspects of life cycle management: Ms Rebecca Freitag and Mr Hannes Krieg.

About Rebecca Freitag

During her mandate as the German UN Youth Delegate on Sustainable Development, Rebecca Freitag represented the interests of the young generation at UN conferences on sustainable development and in national politics. Promoting the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), she assists young people, businesses and civil society in a transformation towards sustainability. As the Ambassador of the Rights for Future Generations, she challenges our current paradigms and explores ways into a sustainable future.

In order to advance already existing solutions and to promote the achievement of the SDGs in the corporate world as well, she co-founded the Global Impact Alliance, an association of purpose-driven companies.

Furthermore, in the field of academia, she explores ways in which sustainability can best be communicated and motivated to be implemented by designing an interdisciplinary sustainability course at the university.
