Define 'Sustainability Through Innovation'
The humankind cannot continue to exhaust the natural resources the way we currently are without causing biodiversity loss and global warming and ultimately deteriorating the chances to maintain our living standards as well. Large part of the resources are wasted and do not bring the wanted benefit. Innovation can improve resource optimization through both effectiveness, i.e. making sure we focus on right activities to get the wanted result and efficiency, i.e. performing those activities in the best possible way.
Our experience, network and rich history means that we spot the investment opportunities others miss.
