Ms. Küçük, there are many foundations that have set themselves the task of doing good – now you head the new foundation of the insurance giant Allianz to promote climate protection and culture. What do you do differently from the others?
Esra KüÇük: We live in a time of complex crises and have reached a tipping point. The transformation to a CO₂-neutral future, which should be fair for everyone, will be a mammoth task. This can no longer be created from individual bubbles alone. The funding structure of many foundations is focused on sectors. We want to burst these bubbles.
