Way of working
Berg is Dutch for mountain
My moral compass is focused on doing the right things and I am allergic to green washing and hidden agendas. I have an extensive international network in the field of sustainability and asset management. Born in Rotterdam in the Netherlands, the city of ‘Geen woorden maar daden’, ‘Action speaks louder than words’.
I am a systems thinker who can connect parties and can get the best out of them by acting together with them as a connactor (connecting & acting). In transitions, I have an eye for the higher order value case in order to create an optimal climate for the underlying business cases.
I look at complex situations with an open mind and I am able to clearly identify connections. The basic attitude is listening to what people say and what people don’t say, asking clarifying questions, wanting to see the things behind the obvious, discovering limiting beliefs in order to arrive at achievable total solutions with a creative mind, with an eye for details. When there is an elephant in the room, I know how to free it in a positive way.
Can absorb many areas of knowledge and link them together. For example, a comment on the importance of water by Lester Brown and an article by the University of Shanghai ‘how to harvest energy in space that is released when water vapor falls back to water’ led to the question ‘what if this is true, then this is crucial to our climate policy?” I wouldn’t have been able to look at my children and myself in the mirror if I didn’t figure this out. Together with Pieter-Paul de Kluiver and my daughter Maxime, I came to the insight through many areas of knowledge that we can achieve our climate goals faster, cheaper, with less risk and more social perspective if we restore the green water level and the power of the natural air conditioning.
