Throughout human history, new technologies have revolutionised society. But breakthrough technology can be perceived as disruptive – until we know how it works and are able to manage the risk. That’s where TÜV SÜD comes in.
For a century and a half, we have played the pivotal role of helping our partners turn innovative ideas into social realities. The year 2016 marks our 150th anniversary, and it’s a good time to look to the future. As we stand at the threshold of the fourth industrial revolution, our role in ensuring quality, safety and sustainability is more critical than ever.
As part of our anniversary celebrations, we will focus on four strategic themes that we believe will shape the narrative of commerce and society for centuries to come: sustainable development, consumer protection, digital transformation and urbanisation.
We have identified these themes based on our long-term view of how technology can ensure the harmonious co-existence of people, property and the environment. We will employ these strategic themes as a platform to engage with global business leaders, governments and communities.
