Technology

What makes the world go around? Innovative technology. And in mobility, building, energy and manufacturing, especially green innovations are changing how people interact with and shape their environment. Technology innovations are lighting the path to the future, allowing us to imagine cities where LED can illuminate traffic patterns and wearables direct us to the closest hospital or where city-sponsored bikes share lanes with electric cars. New innovative ideas disrupt old patterns, opening the door to new thinking and energy-saving solutions like “lean manufacturing” or “green-roofing”. It keeps us on the move and in the right direction – to sustainable living.
