IMAGINE Leaders – Anne Kleppe
The Boston Consulting Group (BCG), Managing Director & Partner
I am a physicist by training with a PhD in Mathematical Physics from Cambridge University, with a strong interest in music and art. I’ve been a Gates Cambridge Scholar at Cambridge and a member of the German Academic Scholarship Foundation.
Before joining BCG in 2020, I’ve been a managing director with a specialised consulting company in Germany which focused on the application of quantitative methods in financial institutions – myself with an increasing focus on sustainability.
In 2020 I joined BCG for two reasons: 1) I wanted to be better equipped to help banking clients shape their agendas towards a more sustainable, nature positive future and BCG seemed the perfect home for this and 2) with BCG X (or back then Gamma) I wanted to bring in world-class data and modelling capabilities to support this journey, as I believe that ‘you cannot manage what you cannot measure’.
With their ability to direct capital flows into sustainable, nature positive economic activities, and away from unsustainable ones, I believe that the financial industry has a tremendous role to play when it comes to climate and nature action.
