More information about the local support provided to our members is available on the Network Hub.

Spain

Delia García Gómez, CSR and Sustainability Manager at El Corte Ingles will continue to serve as Chair of the Spanish Network for an additional two years. She is responsible for developing, implementing and managing the Responsible Sourcing and Product Sustainability strategy for fashion, home, stationery, cosmetics, and food. Delia also manages the collaboration with amfori and other ethical trade initiatives.

‘’Companies must take an active role in developing strategies with a purpose and go beyond profit to contributing to a sustainable production and consumption. But no company can solve the global challenges on their own. A deep understanding of those challenges, cooperation and dialogue within amfori’s working groups will allow us to reach the ultimate goals”.

 

Sweden

Alexandra Anastoulis is a sustainability strategist and social compliance professional at Coop Sweden. She has extensive experience working with food and global supply chains.

‘’As the Swedish Network Chair, I hope to facilitate the dialogue between the Swedish members and amfori as well as to contribute to the association’s development’’

 

Switzerland

Anna Vetsch is a Sustainability Manager at Coop Switzerland and Co-founder of fin-projects, a company working on sustainable and traceable leather supply chains. She has a master’s in Political Sciences and International Law.

"Participation and cooperation are key for a strong development of the association and its core initiatives amfori BSCI and amfori BEPI. I'm happy to be part of a good and critical dialogue."

 

Maja Buerkli manages suppliers’ implementation of amfori BSCI and educates staff. She is responsible for the help desk and oversees that bb trading maintains their commitment to amfori.

‘’As an SME, I know we have limited resources. This makes it important to be able to use these resources in a targeted manner and help others implement them. It is dear to my heart that even more members are actively involved in our amfori Network group.’’
