Dr. Lisa Winter

Team leader

Lisa Winter is an environmental engineer with a degree from the Technical University of Berlin. Her focus is on the evaluation of sustainability and life cycle assessment of various products and services.

About me

As a PhD environmental engineer with a specialization in life cycle assessment methodology, I have been involved in sustainability assessments, especially the evaluation of potential environmental impacts of products and services, for many years. This includes consulting for companies as well as international and interdisciplinary research efforts.


I am particularly interested in the implementation of sustainable development and promotion of environmental responsibility by corporate stakeholders. This includes, above all, applied research and consulting services on resource efficiency and material ecology as well as the development of life cycle assessments.
