“Sustainability means ensuring, within the scope of my possibilities, an environment that is worth living in and has a promising future for future generations. In this sense, it is our task to align all activities accordingly and to take meaningful measures for this. As a family business owner, I do not see my responsibility as being limited to my own measures, but also in taking others along with me on this path. Fokus Zukunft is the perfect platform for this.”

“What we do today decides what the world will be like tomorrow.” (Boris Pasternak) To me, sustainability means thinking holistically. It means thinking about the impact our actions can have on our family, children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, fellow human beings, our environment today and in the future.
Lena Endres
Sustainability Consultant & Sales
“We must all join forces and act NOW to leave a liveable world to future generations.”

Rumyana Ergül

“The following line from a song by the band Die Ärzte never fails to motivate me: ‘It is not your fault that the world is the way it is. It’s only your fault if it stays that way.’ I love the great outdoors, so I really appreciate the beauty and power of nature. I want to help preserve this treasure for future generations.”
Franziska Hertel

The transition to a lower-emission economy not only offers the opportunity to rethink other environmental aspects, but also to positively influence them. A holistic approach is essential.”
Gianluca Vassallo
Sustainability Consultant
“With my background in biology and agriculture, I think first of all of biodiversity as the basis for sustainable development, because we cannot live without intact ecosystems. However, diversity can also be thought of in a social and economic context and is my drive for a colorful future with enough resources also for the next generations!”

Christina Schäferkord
Brand & Communication Consultant
“Sustainability can be found in all areas of life. In order to maintain your own drive despite this complexity, I believe that even small, conscious steps are crucial. Through clear communication, I want to simplify the topic and make it accessible to more people.”
Julia Jahn

“We can only navigate a sustainable path into the future if everyone grasps the essence of what the word means. Communication is the connecting link between people and this vision of sustainability. Only by communicating openly, consistently and simply will we be able to make a difference collectively.”
Tatjana Rumszauer
Marketing & Communication Consultant (on parental leave)
“We have only this one Earth, so future generations should be able to enjoy her as well.”
Andreas Allihn
Carbon Offsetting Specialist
“For me, sustainability is a journey without a defined end goal – because there is always potential to act even more sustainably. It’s about taking the first step and always setting new goals. Just like on a journey, you always get lots of impressions and are constantly learning new things – and that’s how it should be on the road to a more sustainable future. As a recruiter, it’s important to me to find the people who will lead the way and support Fokus Zukunft and our customers as part of the team/as consultants on their sustainability journey.”
Selina Wolfangel
Human Resources
“We are all responsible for tomorrow’s world and can make a big difference together – as long as we take decisive action now.”
Peter Friess

Dr. Gregor Weber
Senior Expert & Cooperation Partner
“CO₂ reduction is not everything, but everything is nothing without it. I am delighted that our team can support you in professional calculations of your carbon footprint, climate strategy development and reliable climate neutralisation at your company. Let’s get started – the clock is ticking!”
Apu Gosalia
Sales Partner
“I have the same motivation as Hermann Hesse: To achieve what is possible, we must attempt the impossible again and again.”
Frank Kronenberg
Sales Partner
“The world is changed by your example, not by your opinion.” – Paulo Coelho
Christian Lutz
Sales Partner
“What motivates me afresh every day? Thomas Alva Edison’s motto: “It is better to proceed imperfectly than to procrastinate perfectly”.
Andrea Meier
Sales Partner
“Reduction or offsetting are the only options until we develop the technology to do something about climate change. I am committed to getting as many companies involved as possible. For us and especially for my children’s generation.”
Jens Polumsky
Sales Partner
“Einstein once described the purest form of madness as leaving everything as it is but still hoping that something will change. We are the generation that can (still) make a vital difference in regard to climate change. So we need to stop lamenting and focus on climate-neutral strategies.”
Gerhard Zirsch, M.A.
Sales Partner
