Our Team of  Sustainability Consultants

Emma is our Team Lead. She is always available for a chat about the group’s needs and development opportunities. In addition to supervising our projects, she is often thinking about business strategy, traveling and making sure her girl’s homework is done (common mum’s multitasking). She loves art, going to the gym and watching a good film.


Mariela is a health and safety engineer with a mild obsession for keeping up with the news. She is the founder of Futuris’ Reading Club and usually enjoys reading a book with a cup of good coffee early in the office. She is known for her taste for teaching, as well as her teamwork and project management skills.

When you call Futuris you will most likely be greeted by Karen, our team administrator. Karen keeps things around the office tidy, with a good sense of humor and her free and joyful spirit. She is always happy to share a cup of coffee and a piece of cake, go shopping or talk about her children.


Jurgen talks with his hands, as if he were Italian, sings in the shower and hums as he writes. His German name is a false clue to his place of birth: Jurgen was born in a cinema in the southern neighborhoods of San José. Or so it seems. He does not like the sun but he does like photography, he directs films from time to time and is our communication director.
