Since the beginning of her musical career, she's tried to minimise the ecological footprint of her artistic endeavours, from touring to merch to distribution. In 2021, she, along with a group of artists, industry professionals and environmental scientists, co-founded the Dutch branch of Music Declares Emergency, an international organisation calling for immediate climate action.

MDE was founded in 2019 in the UK and grew into an international movement, with supporters including artists like Billie Eilish, Bon Iver and Radiohead. In August 2022, Frederike completed her master's degree at the pop department of the Conservatory of Amsterdam presenting “A Four Step Guide to Reducing Your Environmental Impact As An Artist in Today’s Music Industry” as her master thesis. She’s organised panels, workshops and masterclasses at renowned industry events such as ADE Green, ESNS, the VNPF Congress and at the Royal Conservatory of the Hague. Her long awaited new EP ‘rose’ was released on on September 29th of this year.
