Purple IVY is strengthening its team of sustainability experts with the addition of Rebecca Oliver.

Drawing from her background in science and business, Rebecca helps companies carve a way forward in tackling critical issues like climate change.

As of March 2020, Rebecca Oliver has joined our team of consultants. Her talents will enhance our offering to help companies chart short and long-term responses to critical risks like climate change and increase transparency on climate risks to the financial community.

“With her experience in scenario processes, and her ability to bring together professionals from across sectors, she is a natural addition to our team,” says Purple IVY managing director, Astrid von Schmeling.

A biologist by training, Rebecca has spent some 20 years within sustainability science, stakeholder engagement and the fast-moving consumer goods industry at Unilever. During eight years at the Tällberg Foundation, she brought leaders and experts together to understand and influence global development. Her passion is to use scenarios to help companies better scope, get excited about, and prepare for, the future.

“We are living in extraordinary times where the search to define the future is on. The need for a response from companies to a changing context will only deepen. Purple IVY has the tools and strategy for supporting companies who wish to future-proof their operations. I look forward to contributing with my knowledge and expertise,” says Rebecca.

Most recently, Rebecca worked with Johan Rockström and the Swedish Royal Academy of Sciences to set up the Swedish office for the global sustainability science platform Future Earth, where she brought finance and climate experts together to explore risk models.
