LESS IS MORE
Making more out of fewer resources is becoming an increasingly important goal for humanity. Consumption and population growth increase, but the reserves that our planet holds are naturally finite.
A paradigm shift is needed - also to create fair living conditions for all. Growth and prosperity must be decoupled from resource consumption. Research and innovation must work on this even more than before. In this annual report, we have compiled many examples of how we are already making progress along this path with our materials research - from the responsible use of the vital element water to resource-saving printed electronics on paper.
