Lisa Szeponik is the programme director at Löning and an expert in stakeholder and rights-holder engagement.
She is part of the management team and also works as a senior consultant for our clients. Since she joined the team in 2015, Lisa has led numerous human rights due diligence projects for a diverse portfolio of clients, such as international food and beverage retailers, consumer goods brands, and non-profit organizations including UNICEF and WWF Germany.

She empowers internal teams, such as corporate responsibility, procurement, and human resources departments, to make a positive impact on people by adopting a human rights-based approach to their own activities. At the same time, Lisa brings in perspectives from rights-holders and their representatives to foster change in business conduct.
