"The Innovate 2030 project series addresses central and relevant problems facing our society. This includes the search for solutions to the major challenges for a sustainable future. Finding such solutions requires the cooperation of politics, science and business with new partners, such as the digital generation and tech scene.

In order to be able to counteract global environmental changes, new forms of knowledge creation and exchange are needed. In particular, however, we need to enter into exchange with the younger generation and jointly develop innovations when it comes to securing and creating good and sustainable  livelihoods and quality of life for future generations."

"We at Bechtle are very pleased to be part of Innovate 2030. We, too, feel the change towards a circular economy and support our customers on their way to more sustainability. We were thrilled to see how committed and passionate the numerous teams are about a sustainable economy: With progressive product and process ideas, with creativity and stringency, with ambition and courage. It is precisely the combination of digitization and sustainability that is the future topic of our time.

At this point, we encourage exchange with the young teams and know how to integrate this into our day-to-day business. As an innovative employer, we will continue to support young people as they embark on their careers and take pleasure in what we have achieved together: together strong for the future. That is what we stand for. I wish you every success."
