  • An industrial firm that concerns itself with nature and biodiversity

    EDF Group
    Jean-Christophe Mollaret, EDF Group

    The EDF Group’s industrial activities sometimes take place in remarkable natural settings. The activities interact with an area’s biodiversity and benefit from the ecosystem services it provides.

This applies to all areas of life – including the “little things”. With super-efficient home appliances, every household can reduce its power and water consumption considerably. And that benefits our climate and our budgets.  more[...]  login_required

    Bayer Group

    The globe today faces a series of major challenges: How can we safeguard high-quality food and good healthcare? How can we tackle climate change and save resources?
