Prof. Dr. Christian Berg deals with the topics of sustainability, innovation and resilience. How can we ensure that as many people as possible can live well without jeopardizing the future? What role does the economy play in this? What can companies do to operate more sustainably? How can the political framework help to set the right incentives for sustainability, and what can each and every individual do?

Starting from the question of what holds the world together at its core, Christian Berg first studied physics and philosophy, and later theology. Through a dissertation on the relationship between theology and natural science, he arrived at the question of how we can deal responsibly with creation and use technology accordingly.

Christian Berg Lecture topics:

  • Sustainability – Challenge and Opportunity for Companies
  • Corporate sustainability – Driver of innovation and optimization
  • Why are we not more sustainable? And how can we change that?
  • Sustainable Finance as a lever of transformation

Prof. Dr. Christian Berg has been responsible for the topic of sustainability for many years as Chief Sustainability Architect in the management consultancy of SAP. He has been Visiting Professor for Corporate Sustainability at Saarland University since 2010 and Honorary Professor of Sustainability and Global Change at Clausthal University of Technology since 2008. Among other things, he has advised the former German Chancellor on sustainable business issues and his most recent book is a report to the Club of Rome. His credo is that sustainability is both responsibility and opportunity for companies.

“Starting into a better future with perspective.”

Christian Berg: “Perspective comes from placing things in contexts. It is important to understand the contexts of today’s challenges in order to draw the right conclusions. And that always has to do with me – no matter where I am at the moment and what moves me. Because the future doesn’t just come to me – it’s up to me to shape it.”

Prof. Dr. Christian Berg is looking forward to being on your stage as a moderator or speaker.
