The Allianz Group is giving 100 million euros in capital for a new foundation to bring together climate activists and artists. What shoud that? An interview with managing director Esra Küçük.
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.
