Sustainable development is closely linked to trends that will shape our future. These so-called megatrends are decisive drivers of furture economic growth.

Energy and Raw Materials

The demand for natural resources is increasing, driven by a growing population and higher spending power.

Climate Change

The earth’s climate is changing faster than ever before. The consequences are manifold and affect us all.

Water

Water is the oil of the 21st century. With growing population, urbanisation and climate change, it is becoming a scarce commodity.

Infrastructure

There are few projects on which more money is spent than on the construction and maintenance of infrastructure.

Social Stability

Scarce resources, unemployment and unbalanced wealth end to lead to social tensions/radicalisation.
