Carolin has worked in business and human rights since 2005. Based in Berlin, she brings to twentyfifty’s clients a strategic perspective on responsible business practices and the ability to help companies translate a vision into tangible, commercially pragmatic as well as sustainable programmes and projects.
Before joining twentyfifty in 2016, Carolin led the human rights practice at Telstra, Australia’s largest telecommunications company. She worked with functions such as procurement, risk and legal to integrate responsible business and human rights issues into core business processes by providing expert advice, influencing key stakeholders, reviewing tools and processes and building capacity.
In previous consulting roles with Maplecroft and Sinclair Knight Merz (now Jacobs), Carolin assisted corporate and government clients in various sectors – including telecommunications, extractives, natural resource management and consumer goods – with developing corporate responsibility strategies, defining policies and management systems, building sustainable supply chains and sustainability reporting.
She gained significant technical knowledge on business and human rights by leading the development of the Maplecroft Human Rights Risk Atlas, the first ever comprehensive set of country human rights risk indices for business.
A German native, Carolin works bilingually in English and German. She has broad international experience, having lived and worked in India, Ireland, the UK, the US and Australia.
