We think in generations instead of quarters, and act responsibly in everything we do. This commitment is the foundation of our lasting economic success.

Business with a conscience

As a leading science and technology company, we want to take part in building the future and making life better for people all over the world. Our products and technologies are the key. They are an important contribution to the process of solving global problems. At the same time we focus our resources where we can achieve the most. We do this by engaging in three strategically important areas, namely health, environment as well as culture and education.
