Hannah Helmke: Shareholder, Co-founder and CEO

Hannah Helmke (born in 1988) has a Bachelor of Science in Psychology and a Bachelor of Arts in International Business. Her focus on economic activity in a world affected by climate change was the result of combining both disciplines. For four years, Hannah has been pursuing her conviction that the top-down approach to emissions targets management is correct. She has gained valuable experience working for Daimler AG and for the Deutsche Post DHL Group. She most recently worked for IT service provider BridgingIT GmbH where she explored the potentials of digitalisation for reaching sustainability targets and gained project management experience introducing science-based targets as reporting instruments. She has published articles on the greater context of science-based targets and thoroughly enjoys giving lectures on her area of expertise.

 

Hannah is a daringly honest and solutions-oriented partner committed to the integrity of her convictions. Although she sees facts as the greatest enemy to truth, she does not easily tolerate obvious illogic. Her deep respect for the blue planet is fed by her fascination with the natural world. She never wants to lose her ability to observe.

Dr. Sebastian Müller, LL.M.: Shareholder and Co-founder

Dr. Sebastian Müller (born in 1983) is a doctor of law with a focus on tax law. He currently practices investment tax law at a large international firm in Frankfurt. His professional activities include tax consultancy for large business projects, and his primary interest is the double taxation of international companies. He views double taxation as an interesting approach when designing emissions taxes or allocating emissions budgets.

 

Sebastian is a rather unusual lawyer; instead of concentrating on tax optimisation, he works with the Society for International Cooperation and the OECD in South Africa on tactics for preventing tax evasion in African countries. Instead of exploiting grey areas, Sebastian is guided by his belief in what is right, which he represents with remarkable integrity.

 

Sebastian’s standards for better and more just business practices, the confidence with which he plans and implements his creative ideas, and his tireless discipline form part of the core values and character of right.

 

Marcela Scarpellini: Business Development

Marcela Scarpellini (born in 1985) studied law at the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello in Caracas (Venezuela) and studied with an LL.M. at the University of Stockholm (Sweden) in the field of environmental law. She has professional experience with the international corporate law firm Norton Rose Fulbright, in the public sector as well as within the fields of intercultural management and project management in a multinational company. In the context of her work with the NGO ProVene, Marcela is engaged with human rights. She is also active in theatre and is a yoga teacher.

 

The fact that the natural world is generally taken for granted in Venezuela - the country where Marcela was born and grew up - is what spurred her to investigate how other countries take responsibility for their ecological systems. She is particularly interested in how this is transferred to social, economic, and political structures.

 

Marcela sees the preservation of functioning ecosystems as the only way to ensure the conditions for development on this planet. For Marcela, work with the concept of science-based emission goals at right. is a clear step toward her vision of how the world should be.
