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

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

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

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

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

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