Sustainability as Core of the Electrolysis Business
Dresden, May 19, 2022
On the way towards net-zero, Sunfire does not only enable industrial businesses to become green – also the electrolysis company itself is focusing on sustainable processes. To this end, Sunfire welcomes Tilo Suckow as Head of Sustainability on board.
Environmental, social and responsible corporate governance: ESG is no longer a nice-to-have. Just like politics and society, corporations are also responsible when it comes to shaping the world in a more sustainable way.
For the Dresden-based electrolysis company Sunfire, sustainability has always been at the heart of its business. Sunfire's electrolysis technologies enable industrial partners to reduce CO2 emissions in the long run. However, the idea of a green future is not all about the technology itself – sustainability also plays a major role when it comes to the company’s internal processes. As of May 1, Tilo Suckow joined the management team as Head of Sustainability to establish an internal sustainability management system.
Tilo Suckow offers longstanding expertise in sustainability consulting
Since 2017, in his role as Project Manager at the non-profit organization WWF, he has been responsible for advising companies on topics related to climate change. "In my previous job, I was mainly focusing on how companies can reduce their greenhouse gas emissions. This not only involved the scope of direct influence, but also upstream and downstream supply chains," Tilo Suckow says.
Prior to joining WWF, Tilo gained valuable experience as a consultant at Ernst & Young, where he helped clients develop and set up effective sustainability management systems and ESG reporting. He holds a degree in Business Administration and Engineering with a focus on Environmental Technology.
Joining Sunfire was the next logical step for the experienced consultant: "Since my studies, I have worked in consulting for eight years. Therefore, the opportunity to join a company where I am directly responsible for sustainability management was particularly attractive for me. I want to identify with my employer's mission and contribute to making the world more sustainable. My new position at Sunfire combines all of this."
Why sustainability plays a major role for Tilo Suckow not only in his job
"My time at WWF in particular has shown me the climate crisis' threatening effects and the increasing pressure on life-giving ecosystems. How we as humanity do business and consume today urgently needs to change. Numerous scientific studies underline this. Everyone must contribute to the transformation: politics, business and society. The sum of many small steps makes a difference. I encourage everyone to integrate sustainability into their everyday life. Because for almost all consumer decisions, there are more sustainable alternatives. For example, vacation without jumping on a plane – even by train, bus and car you can reach countless beautiful corners."
