The world has always been in flux, but the present time seems to be characterized by particularly profound changes. Globalization, trade conflicts, climate change, the move to alternative mobility, connectivity, artificial intelligence, and not least the Covid-19 pandemic — developments such as these pose formidable challenges to a company like Bosch, but also offer us many opportunities. How can we develop new technologies while at the same time building trust in them? How can we accelerate the development of solutions for energy efficiency and climate action while at the same time achieving a balance between economic, social, and ecological considerations? This blog attempts to offer answers to economic and technological questions, both of which are ultimately social questions as well.
As you will see, there is a common theme here: Bosch’s commitment to innovation. Developing technology “Invented for life” is our strategic imperative. Keeping the future firmly in our sights, using our profound knowledge to find solutions, countering the negative effects of technology such as climate change with new and smarter technologies — that is what drives our company’s work. And that is what I write about in this blog, against the backdrop of my experience as well as my responsibility as the Bosch CEO. I hope you enjoy reading it, but much more than that, I hope it serves as critical and maybe even inspiring food for thought.
