Georg Kell, Arabesque Partners, board vice-chairman

Financial Times

At our meeting in New York, Georg Kell hands me two new business cards. One is for the United Nations Global Compact, which Mr Kell founded in 2000 to promote corporate labour and human rights standards. Having just stepped down as executive director, he is now its senior policy adviser. The other announces that he is board vice-chairman at Arabesque Partners, a sustainability-focused investment firm. This card is made of decidedly thicker paper.
