The Corona crisis has shown us that not even a global lockdown will slow down climate change. It is not enough just to talk about the climate; it is time to act more courageously and tackle the many global challenges we face together.
But what about the waste problem? Clearly mankind is the cause here, and anyone who was at the beach in the past years could clearly see the consequences in the large mountains of waste on some coasts.
A long-term study in Germany found that in the last 10 years about 60% of the insects have died. Biodiversity is in danger. Another fact that cannot be ignored.
Western-style neo-colonialism made the 500 million small farmers of the world our food suppliers, but on terms that are no longer sustainable for the farmers. Under these circumstances, it is questionable how the increasing demand, due to population growth and increasing prosperity, is to be met.
The Earth’s population is ever increasing. By 2050, we will have to supply around 10 billion people on earth. In addition, an ever larger proportion of humans enjoy middle class standing and therefore have higher demands on comfort, space, nutrition and freedom.
Climeworks removes CO2 from the atmosphere and stores it long-term. Danone is placing sustainability at the heart of its growth strategy and is consistently aligning itself accordingly. From now on Volvo will only build cars with hybrid or electric technology. Lombard & Odier is changing its investment strategy to sustainability because nothing else makes sense. Philips is deliberately focusing its healthcare business on customers in the lowest income segment, in order to gain market share. Various telecom providers have already been doing successful business in structurally weak regions for some time. Also WECONNEX develops sustainable concepts with scaling potential and supports partners on the way to strategic sustainability. The NEXUS concept developed by us is one of Betrand Piccard’s “1,000 profitable solutions to protect the environment“.
Everyone can participate and contribute to a future worth living. Are you using your skills and possibilities in the right way?
In this sense we would like to thank our partners who have supported us in the last years. We are looking forward to keeping up interesting discussions, sharing ideas, pursuing possible partnerships and, of course, above all to concrete inquiries for projects and mandates, so that we too can make our contribution to the system change soon again!
