Zurich – Susanne Vincenz-Stauffacher took over as head of the SENS eRecycling Foundation Board on April 1. In her new office, the lawyer and FDP national councilor wants to drive forward the implementation of the circular economy.
Susanne Vincenz-Stauffacher has chaired the SENS eRecycling Foundation Board since April 1. The 56-year-old lawyer and FDP national councilor from the canton of St.Gallen was the foundation’s preferred candidate, informs SENS eRecycling in a statement. “Due to her excellent networking both politically and economically, her clear commitment to sustainability and her winning manner, we are convinced that Ms. Vincenz-Stauffacher is the right person to bring SENS eRecycling and its partners closer to the common vision of a circular economy,” Christine Wiederkehr-Luther, member of the foundation’s board of trustees and chairwoman of the search committee, is quoted there.
Vincenz-Stauffacher succeeds Dirk Hoffmann, who took over from founder Andreas Röthlisberger in 2020. The new president of the foundation board is “proactive and pragmatic” and has “made a name for herself as a bridge builder” in a short time, writes SENS eRecycling. In her capacity as an independent attorney, Vincenz-Stauffacher advocates for sustainable climate and energy policy on the Judicial Commission and the Commission for the Environment, Spatial Planning and Energy.
Nature and the environment form “a basic component of our health and prosperity, which must be sustainably protected,” Vincenz-Stauffacher explains. “As President of the Foundation Board of SENS eRecycling, I would therefore like to anchor awareness of the circular economy even more firmly in society and work to ensure that, thanks to private-sector organizations such as SENS eRecycling, it does not remain just a vision but becomes a reality as soon as possible.” ce/hs
