Michael is Rainforest Alliance Sustainable Agriculture CoC / FSC / LegalSource Lead Auditor covering Germany, Austria and Switzerland. Michael is our main Preferred by Nature contact for Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
Since I finished my study I always wanted to work related to certification. It is so important those days, to make sure that we are using our resources in a sustainable way. The different certifications don’t limit only to wood, but also include the consumption of food. Being aware of our everyday consumption is very important to me.
Michael has a professional background in forestry. He has worked in several state enterprises doing forest inventories.
He went to New Zealand for a year to work in a forest research company in addition to a reforestation programme. He also participated in a project related to GPS logging in Norway. Since he was still studying, he wanted to work on certification projects. Preferred by Nature allowed him to work with what he ever wanted.
Michael speaks German, English and Norwegian.
He joined Preferred by Nature in 2014.
