Global consulting firm Kearney has appointed Angela Hultberg as a Global Director in its Sustainability team.

Bringing two decades of experience to the role, Hultberg was most recently Head of Sustainable Mobility at IKEA Retail. During her three years in that position, she focused on reducing co-worker and customer travel emissions, in addition to setting ambitious goals for zero emissions home deliveries for the brand.

Earlier in her career, meanwhile, she also gained a wealth of multi-sector sustainability experience through positions at Scania and professional services giant PwC.

Speaking on the appointment via a LinkedIn post, Hultberg remarked, “I look forward to work with colleagues across the world to support businesses as they embark on their sustainability transformation journey… It's not enough to set targets and net zero commitments for 2050, we need to cut all emissions in half this decade, or there will be no chance of staying below 1.5.”

“I hope to use the experiences and learnings I've gathered over the years to help others do just that. It requires more than projects, it requires fundamental transformation of day-to-day business, measurements, tools and organisational set-up.”

Kearney is a global management consulting firm specialising in strategic and operations transformation. The consultancy works with more than three-quarters of the Fortune Global 500, as well as with government bodies and non-profit organisations. The privately-held firm has over 3,500 consultants in 40+ countries.

“I am thrilled to welcome Angela to the team at such an important time for our clients, who are facing enormous pressure to transition to sustainable practices, quickly. Our focus is to help clients deliver their sustainability ambitions using the full power of Kearney,” concluded Forrest.
