I believe sustainability is something that needs to be understood and sought after by everyone. I have learned about the design process and the importance of incorporating sustainability early on, no matter the product. For this process and for continuous improvement in lowering the environmental footprint, factual data is required. I believe that if everyone understands what sustainability is, how it can be measured and how it can be achieved, we can make the world a better place, together.

Stijn works as an Analyst at PRé as part of the consultancy team, with a special interest in sustainable packaging. With his knowledge of the design process and LCA’s, he helps companies to reduce their environmental footprint.

Stijn has an MSc. degree in Industrial Design Engineering, obtained at the University of Twente, the Netherlands. During his Master’s he specialized in packaging engineering and Life Cycle Assessment (LCA). His graduation thesis enveloped the creation of a sustainable packaging strategy, using LCA for fact-based and sustainable design decisions.

After his studies, he started as a freelancer, creating LCA’s in combination with packaging design. Then, after a year of learning and working for himself, he decided to start working at PRé to have a bigger impact on the world around him.
