With my company klarFAKT e.U. I am working as a self-employed entrepreneur in the field environmental protection and climate change since 2019. I studied ‘Environmental Consulting – Waste Management and Disposal Techniques’ at the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, Vienna and integrated also lectures from three other Universities in Austria, France and Australia. During my professional career at the Environment Agency Austria my focus broadened from waste management to climate change mitigation and adaptation. In various international projects I cooperate with the European Environment Agency, the European Commission and many other institutions from different countries. klarFakt is a partner to the European Topic Center for Climate Change Mitigation and to the European Topic Center on Environment and Health. Beyond that I am a certified review expert for the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). I speak German (mother tongue), English and French fluently.

It is very important for me to engage beside my international activities also in Austria, and contribute hereby to the necessary societal transformation. For this reason I enjoy to work with schools, companies and various interest groups and share my knowledge. My objective is to contribute to a better understanding of the urgency and complexity of global heating. Building upon that, I develop with my customers concrete measures and solutions. As only together we can change the future!

Since 2022, I am supporting klarFakt with my expertise in the field of climate protection and emission inventories. Before that, I worked for 10 years at the Environment Agency Austria as a project manager and sector expert for energy/fugitive emissions for national and international reporting of greenhouse gas and air pollutant inventories. My expertise includes the creation, analysis and verification of greenhouse gas and air pollutant inventories, data management and capacity building in an international context. I am a certified reviewer under the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), as well as an experienced reviewer under the LRTAP Convention and the Effort Sharing Decision. In addition to climate protection, dealing with nutritional issues also shapes my professional life, based on my studies in nutritional science at the University of Vienna. My professional experience led me through a wide variety of industries such as food safety, sustainability, ecology and nutritional advice. It is important to me to combine my expertise in the areas of nutrition, climate and environment in order to make synergies usable. I also impart this knowledge in my nutrition workshops and consultations.

Since 2022, I support klarFakt within the framework of the European Topic Center on Human Health and Environment. Here, I contribute to the quality checking and preparation of the European Air Emission Inventories, which have to be reported annually under the NEC Directive and the Air Convention. My expertise is with data management, data analysis and visualisation. I have already been working in this area for more than ten years. Beside that, my interest is with photography/videography (Bullrich.myportfolio.com) and music.
