The nice core team
Florian Gramm actively promotes sustainability, climate protection and the circular economy professionally, as he is the sales manager for one of Europe’s most sustainable printing and media groups based in Mannheim and a similarly progressive company in Belgium. For example, Florian accompanied the certification of Germany’s first cradle-to-cradle-capable print shop and is in customer-supplier relations and best exchange with many innovative and ecologically-minded medium-sized and large companies in D-A-CH. Hardly anyone has such an excellent network as Florian with companies that have already taken important steps towards a successful circular economy and high sustainability: Such as Cradle to Cradle or Blue Angel certifications. He is therefore an excellent contact person for our (potential) member companies. Florian knows the situation of companies that have already gone ahead towards circularity, as well as those for whom the decision about the first (or next) steps is difficult. As a trained printer and graduate in business administration, Florian’s experience makes him an excellent communicator, integrator and inspiring networker, and nice is his vocation. Florian lives in the beautiful Palatinate in Weingarten in the Germersheim / Speyer area.
