About Sustify

Sonja Westphal is a passionate social entrepreneur who was shocked to witness the catastrophic production conditions and the high level of environmental pollution during her travels in Asia. That’s when she decided to invest her energies into making sure that outsourcing of production to such countries did not simply lead to the outsourcing of environmental degradation and to the exploitation of workers. After reorienting her career with a master’s degree in environmental and sustainability management, she decided to change not only on a private level but also to try and make a difference professionally.

She noticed that there was still no digital sustainability training that was specifically aimed at an educationally disadvantaged target group outside of Europe, and that featured more than just tests, quizzes and long abstract texts. She did not hesitate before taking on the challenge and developing the first eLearning courses for factories in countries of the Global South – Sustify was born.
