DIPL.-ING. ANDREAS MÜSELER
After the completion of my studies as an Engineer for Air- and Space Technology in the 80s I started my working life at the chemical plant engineering and construction industry. At a very early stage the protection of the environment got crucial for the chemical industry. This led to my specialization. Certification schemes like ISO 14001 and EMAS appeared.
In the 90s I changed to the tourism industry where first ideas on the implementation of these schemes came up. Beside the demand on environmental protection, the issue of social responsibility got important in the tourism world because the customers focused more and more on it. Corporate Social Responsibility and Sustainability got to be the keywords.
Given this background I took the responsibility of being the sustainability manager for a large German tour operator for nearly twenty years. In close cooperation with the diverse supply chain, the destinations, international governmental and non-governmental Organizations and the interested civil society I learned how to establish sustainability successful in the tourism industry, even in the big scale tourism, not only in the niche. Beside this I worked during these years and still ongoing in an honorary capacity for several national and international organizations and associations.
Sustainability today is a quality aspect. Consulting, Qualification and Education of tourism professionals, the identification of the right certification schemes, and the supervision of the process is our task.
Me and my team are looking forward to support you on the way to success. I am also glad to present my long-time colleagues Miriam Landhofer and Antje Becker.
Miriam Landhofer studied history and philosophy. During her studies she specialised on ethics in tourism. She has several years of working experience in this field, especially in implementing human rights and child protection systems within the tourism industry and in cooperation with NGOs.
Antje Becker studied Intercultural Relations (B.A.) and Sociology (M.A.). She has several years of working experience in the sustainability department of a large German tour operator. Her main focus is on the topics of sustainability and environmental challenges, animal protection, human rights, gender equality and LGBTI/Diversity in tourism.
