Description | Additional Information

you name it – we put it up

As innovation manager at Porsche, I am part of a team that identifies themes with future relevance for Porsche. We initiate, support and run proof of concept, pilot and development projects to explore these themes.

My academic background is in industrial design engineering (BSc and MSc from Delft University of Technology in the Netherlands), which, combined with 10+ years in consulting in London and Cambridge, provides a good basis to understand the potential new technologies and solutions might have. I am curious and always interested in what is coming ´next´, but above all, what these innovations might enable for our customers or employees.

Reaching Sustainability Goals Through Supply Chain Transparency - Challenges and Opportunities

++All Access Only++

Breakout Session

Pilot Partners


Topic Discussion

Aimed at Part Manufacturers, (Plastic) Material Producers, any company representatives involved in the supply chain

What are the opportunities, and challenges, when various players throughout the automotive supply chain increase transparency on sustainability features of materials, parts and products? The implementation of more sustainable material options plays an important role in the reduction of the environmental impact of the automotive industry. To enable this, it is crucial that relevant and trusted information can be accessed and traced throughout the supply chain - from raw material production to the final vehicle, and even into recycling. In this session, we will host a facilitated discussion to explore together with you the opportunities that a more transparent supply chain offers for OEMs, tiers and plastic producers, as well as share learnings from our pilot project with Circularise, where we involved three plastic producers and multiple Tier-1 suppliers. While the focus of the pilot project was on plastic materials, where Circularise has a strong presence, the topic could also be of interest for other types of materials.
