Solutions for a better life
How Blue Competence creates more quality of life
Acting sustainably does not mean having to abandon a high standard of living – quite the contrary. Apart from the fact that we benefit from responsible use of energy or resources, sustainability always has a social dimension. One-sided considerations of environmental protection, profitability or political questions are only rarely meaningful. Sustainable solutions are based on integration and the coordination of interests. Thus ensuring and enhancing our quality of life over the long term, requires taking all aspects into account and particularly thinking about all of humanity. In future, we will be confronted with an higher life expectancy and the consequences of the ever increasing average age of the population will be major cities, which attract an increasing number of people and grow into mega-cities of completely new dimensions. That means an annual global population increase of 80 million people, who have to be fed and supplied with water. These are just a few examples of the many challenges, which directly impinge on our quality of life and which we must meet – with concrete, technical solutions such as innovative technology for water supply and water treatment or for modern agriculture.
