BEUMER Group announced Andreas Backs as its new director of global sustainability. In this role, he is responsible for the development and implementation of the group’s global sustainability strategy.
Backs’ responsibilities include formulating a vision and goals, evaluating key issues, and developing a roadmap that measures and improves performance in this area. He is also responsible for communicating with stakeholders and training of employees.
Backs joined BEUMER in September 2022. Prior to that, he worked for almost two years at an international management consultancy, among other posts as a sustainability expert. Backs completed his bachelor’s and master’s degrees in environmental science and technology at the Technical University of Berlin.
“Global sustainability offers a special opportunity for the BEUMER Group,” said Backs. “That’s because we supply our products to industries and markets that are not considered sustainable.”
He aims to create added value not only for users but also for the company’s own employees. Only with attractive and inviting workplaces can sustainable solutions for intralogistics be developed.
