NIUB Sustainability Consulting

NIUB Sustainability Consulting aims to support the transformation of laboratories and life science companies towards more sustainability.

Kerstin Hermuth-Kleinschmidt, owner of NIUB Sustainability Consulting, graduated in chemistry and holds a PhD in microbiology from the university of Freiburg.  She worked for several years in sales and technical customer service in the life science industry, before she turned her attention to the topic of sustainability.  

As an independent consultant, speaker and author of publications on various aspects of sustainability, her focus is now on the implementation and monitoring of sustainability processes and the practical implementation of sustainability in scientific work and research. She offers workshops and lectures on specific aspects of sustainability in laboratory and research work and the context of life sciences companies as well as individual support. Since 2017, she has also been teaching at the Center for Applied Cultural Studies (ZAK) at KIT Karlsruhe as part of the "Sustainable Development" degree program. As a member of EGNATON since 2014, she has contributed to the development of EGNATON-CERT, the first certification system for sustainable laboratory technologies, and is now part of the audit team.
