WATER

Water has an indisputable, rapidly growing strategic importance across sectors and ecosystems - especially in these days of climate change. We support solutions focused on treating water as a vital resource, the sustainability of water management, the quality of surface and groundwater, and tackling drought.

CO2

Climate protection and carbon neutrality are key issues. And so we are looking for ways to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, especially CO2. These are from ¾ generated primary energy, transport, industrial processes and construction.

WASTE &  PLASTICS

Through innovation, we strive to reduce the waste burden on our environment. We aim to reduce the waste production and support further usage of waste as a material, recycling and the principles of circular economy. A good management of waste means sustainable product designing as well.

ENERGIES

Alternative, clean energy sources, but also increasing the energy efficiency of materials or creating an integrated and digitized energy market. These topics of energetics have a huge impact on the carbon neutrality that the EU has committed itself to by 2050.
