Anna Alex: Could the coronavirus crisis become a leading example in the fight against climate change

About this event

Dear Community,

What if we use the power of digital disruption and the power of capitalism not only to become rich in money and experience but to leave the world in better shape?

What if we don’t differentiate between purpose- and profit-driven companies?

And which tools does it need to enable companies to become planet positive?

When Anna Alex joined “Leaders for Climate Action” last year she realized that a missing element in fighting the climate crisis is lack of transparency and necessary tools within companies. This was the starting point for her new company - Planetly.

In this fireside chat, she will share insights on founding Planetly, how data can be used to push companies into a sustainable direction and why she and her co-founder Benedikt Franke chose to found a For-Purpose, For-Profit business.

Come and join us for our first co-hosted Fireside Chat together with the SG chapter Berlin on May 28th.

Looking forward to seeing you all... virtually!
