Antje von Dewitz, entrepreneur and CEO of the mountain sports outfitter VAUDE, talks to Jörg Thadeusz about her very own way of acting as sustainably as possible with her company: in social, ecological and economic terms. Episode 14 of the ndion podcast.
In an interview with Jörg Thadeusz, Antje von Dewitz describes her hurdles and challenges on the way to becoming a sustainable organisation and why it is worth taking them on. She talks personally about her dreams and family, how she grew into the company and manages to master the conflicting goals in small steps. And about how VAUDE has succeeded in increasing the proportion of women in management roles.
A conversation about corporate responsibility, corporate culture and the innovation potential that can lie in limitations.
