As part of our first interview series in September 2018, Georg Kell was asked a couple of questions about his work in the Sustainability Council, his lessons-learned working for sustainability, and his vision for our Open Source Lab:
“The disruptions due to technology and social behavior are enormous. Getting a glimpse into that and trying to get a handle on it is phenomenal and so critically important for the automotive industry, in particular. So we hope that fresh ideas come out – new concepts that can be applied and ideas emerge that are not usually in the research and development paradigm of linear efficiency improvers.”
Among other positions, Georg Kell is the founding director of the United Nations Global Compact, the world’s largest voluntary corporate sustainability initiative, he received numerous recognitions and has been named among the “100 Most Influential in Business Ethics” every year since 2011.
