A Conscious Step Toward Sustainability.
From the fashion industry to the automotive sector? That was precisely the path chosen by Franziska Köber. Today, as part of the "Compliance, Integrity & Sustainability" team within "International Procurement Services" (IPS), she works to ensure that suppliers comply with our values with respect to human rights. In an interview, the native of Düsseldorf explains what motivated her to switch industries, and what she loves about Mercedes-Benz.

The automotive and fashion industries are different. Every industry has its own tonality.
Franziska Köber (36) is working for the Group with responsibility for the subject of human rights at IPS in non-production materials in the "Compliance, Sustainability & Integrity" team, and works with suppliers around the world. The graduate textile engineer had previously spent several years working in procurement for a fashion group.
