Five challenges that we intend to overcome with the help of science and technology

We are driven by global challenges that we turn into opportunities for growth with our customers. Our strategy focuses on five major global challenges:

Climate action – Clean energy for the future

Climate change can be slowed down if all sectors of the economy pull together and act now. We champion our customers to transition to a clean energy system and leave fossil fuels behind.


Resource sufficiency – Prosperity from resource wisdom

Efficient solutions, renewables and a circular economy help us to ensure that there are enough resources for everyone.

Good life – Improved quality of life, work, health and well-being

Health care, the labour market and our living environment are all changing. We want to use science and technology to ensure a good standard of living for as many people as possible.

Safety and security – Resilience in a turbulent world

The world is safer than ever before, but new threats are emerging with digitalisation. It is important to be prepared for even the most unexpected phenomena.

Industrial renewal – Innovations empowering industry

Digital solutions increase the efficiency of production processes and create new business opportunities in the industrial sector.
