Carolin Seeger

Business and human rights expert with more than 15 years of experience working with global corporations. 


Before founding Seeger Consultants in early 2020, I was the Managing Consultant of twentyfifty GmbH, the leading consultancy on business and human rights in Germany. At twentyfifty, my clients included seven of the German DAX 30 companies, among many others.

From 2012 to 2016, I led the human rights practice at Telstra, Australia’s leading telecommunications company. I worked with key functions like Procurement, Compliance, Risk and HR to integrate social and human rights issues into core business processes. 

I started my career at Maplecroft in 2005, where – in addition to various consulting engagements – I led the development of the Maplecroft Human Rights Risk Atlas, the first ever comprehensive set of country human rights risk indices for business.

Based in Berlin, I work internationally and bilingually in English and German. My broad international experience stems from having spent 16 years living and working in India, Ireland, the UK, the US and Australia.

In addition to my work for Seeger Consultants, I am Senior Advisor to renowned Australian business and human rights consultancy Pillar Two. I work with the Pillar Two team on selected projects on a freelance basis.

I also work with the German Government's Helpdesk on Business and Human Rights (Helpdesk Wirtschaft & Menschenrechte) to support German companies of all sizes in understanding and implementing human rights due diligence.

I hold degrees from the London School of Economics and Political Science (MSc Development Management) as well as ESB Business School - Hochschule Reutlingen and Dublin City University (double degree in European Business).
