Katharina Reuter

Dr. Katharina Reuter is the managing director of the UnternehmensGrün trade association, which has been the political voice for a sustainable economy since 1992. This politically independent business association is committed to environmental and climate protection, is recognized as a non-profit organization and carries out a number of educational projects. UnternehmensGrün initiates and coordinates ongoing movements, most recently the business initiative “Entrepreneurs For Future”. Via its European umbrella organization Ecopreneur.eu, the association also takes a stand on environmental and economic issues in Brussels.
Dr. Katharina Reuter is an agricultural economist and co-founder of Ecopreneur.eu (European Sustainable Business Federation) and co-initiator of Entrepreneurs For Future. Her expertise is in demand among others in the jury of the German Environmental Award and the jury of the German Sustainability Award. Katharina also volunteers on the supervisory board of Regionalwert AG Berlin-Brandenburg.
Why do you support the BEST ECONOMY forum 2021? A different voice of business is needed. As UnternehmensGrün, we are the political voice of the sustainable economy. Together, we show that sustainable business is possible today!
What are your long-term goals? I would like to increase the political voice of the sustainable economy and to anchor really sustainable economic activity in the coalition agreement. I would also like to see a change in the media. If they are willing to give classic industry associations a chance to speak, they should also do this for voices of innovative and climate-friendly enterprises. In the long term, climate protection should no longer be a burden but a pleasure. Then the path to a climate-neutral economy is possible together.
