Jana Hack is an Analyst in the areas of circular economy and sustainable supply chains. She sees an urgent need for action in the textile and packaging industry in particular. This is why Jana is especially interested in projects that return resources in these industries to closed material cycles, avoid waste and wastewater or treat them sustainably, and improve environmental and social standards. Since many work processes in the textile and waste processing sector are often carried out by women*, gender equality also plays an important role in her work.
“For me, tapping the potential of unused resources sustainably through the circular economy means looking beyond the boundaries of a product’s life, and assigning responsibility for its longevity and recyclability in a clear, binding manner. The simultaneous promotion of sustainable consumption among consumers as well as fair conditions for people and the environment in supply chains, are a prerequisite for a sustainable circular economy.”
