As branch manager of Green Button in Berlin, Ulrich Plein has been the "master" of the first and only state textile seal in Germany since 2020.

Nach einer leitenden Position bei einer deutschen Handwerkskammer, Manager einer nachhaltigen Stiftung und Berater bei der Deutschen Handwerkskammer hat es den diplomierten Geographie- und Umweltwissenschaftler Ulrich Plein in die Ferne gezogen. Fast 15 Jahre lang war er in Entwicklungsprogrammen des Privatsektors in Äthiopien tätig. Sein Fokus? Der Textil- und Bekleidungssektor. Seine umfangreiche Expertise bringt er seit 2020 in die German Society for International Cooperation (GIZ), genauer, das staatliche Siegel Grüner Knopf für ökologisch und sozial verträgliche Kleidung ein.
