Soledad Contreras

Consultant, Amsterdam Office

I believe in the power of transitioning to more sustainable businesses and society, truly respecting people and the environment. Determined to make this change happen, in 2010 I turned my engineering and business career to sustainability. Since then, I have been lucky to work and learn from several industries, from environmental to social topics, from SMS to large corporations. I have a strong understanding of business drivers and the complexity of their supply chains. Using this knowledge, I help organisations to find sustainable solutions in their daily operations, demonstrating that sustainability can be a great addition to business values.

At MADE-BY I support medium and large fashion brands to build sustainability strategies and implementation plans within their supply chains. As the Technical and Data expert, I oversee and develop our tools to help a wide range of brands with adopting sustainable metrics and impactful action plans.

Before joining MADE-BY I was Project Manager for the Roundtable for Product Social Metrics working for PRé Consultants. Here I facilitated a multi-stakeholder project to develop a sound methodology to measure the social impact of products. Before PRé, I worked for Danone Baby Nutrition, implementing the sustainability strategy in the supply chain, covering various environmental topics such as carbon, energy, water, packaging and waste.

I hold an MSc. in Industrial Engineering, specialised in project management and an MSc. in Environmental Science and Sustainable Development, with specialisation in energy and resource use.
