4 forward-looking investment platforms
The more than fifty companies in which we participate today operate in various sectors. Our four investment platforms - Connected Consumer, Health & Care, Smart Industries & Sustainable Cities - set the stage for significant progress and pioneering innovations. Our companies are providing answers to the social issues of tomorrow: sustainability, ageing, health care, urbanisation, globalisation, ecological food, renewable energy and more. They are daring to look further ahead and set the bar high, keen to transform their sectors with their products and services. They believe that major social impact goes hand in hand with sustainable growth.
"Agility, creativity, adaptability and digital excellence are more than ever crucial for companies wanting to succeed in the Connected Consumer platform."
Health & Care
"Our care pillar has a strategic focus on the quality of health care. Digital technology can play a link role here between preventive and curative care."
"Software is key, integrated connectivity is advancing apace, robotisation is becoming the standard for production, while at the same time creative human intervention remains indispensable for devising, developing and customising all of this."
