                    Every Day is World Environment Day

It might take a village to raise a child, but it takes an ecosystem to protect the earth. At Software AG, we have such an ecosystem and are working hard to make a difference on earth. We have established a worldwide collaborative network with renowned universities and research institutes, enterprises, government institutions, and customers to explore new technologies – some of which can benefit the planet. Our research team is engaged in some ground-breaking projects funded by the European Commission and the German government. During this process, we are repeatedly confronted with the social challenges of our time.

                    Social Change

People are living longer worldwide; over the next three decades, the number of older persons is expected to rise precipitously – along with the number of people over the age of 55 in employment. As the retirement age steadily rises, it is important to create better working conditions for older employees. The sustAGE EU project, supported by our research team, is working with 10 European partners to help companies in labor-intensive industries make daily working life easier for older employees.
