Ellen Tyler joined MBRNDA in 2018 and serves as a Senior Foresight Researcher. In this role, she gets to explore questions ranging from “What do drinking green juice and buying a Mercedes have in common?” to “How does the fluidity between our online and offline social lives change our relationships?” Ellen is currently exploring the concept of “sustainable luxury.” As Mercedes-Benz pursues the Ambition 2039 initiative of a carbon-neutral vehicle fleet by 2039, the team is applying a social research lens to examine the expectations of high-end customers as they become increasingly concerned about sustainability.
