Short biography

Johannes dedicates his Fellowship to the various mechanisms for a sustainable transformation of our economy. More precisely, a synchronization of the three forces of market, finance and policy (e.g. via uniform and binding sustainability reporting). He anchored his studies in agricultural science, economics and management in projects in various agricultural supply chains in the Global South (+3 years in Africa, Asia and Latin America). His passion for a stakeholder-oriented economy grew with work experiences at Olam international, KfW DEG, the International Center for Tropical Agriculture (CIAT) and Agriculture Finance and Consultants international (AFCi), among others.
