Markets of the future
The exploitation of natural resources, the increase in environmental pollution and climate change are threatening the natural basis for life. They are already having a negative effect on economic output, and hence on the prosperity of society. It is therefore imperative with a view to promoting a sustainable society to work in a way that saves resources and is climate friendly. The environmental technology industry plays an important part in this. It delivers solutions to combat the biggest challenges facing society and will also benefit from the global rise in demand for products and services linked to the issues of resource efficiency and climate protection.
The environmental technology industry is thus steadily gaining in importance, bringing with it not just environmental but also economic opportunities. This is one of the growth sectors for the 21st century and is creating jobs, caring for the environment and contributing greatly to the creation of a sustainable society. In view of all this, BayernLB aims to step up its exposure to the environmental technology sector. The sector includes the leading-edge markets of environmentally-friendly energy production, energy efficiency, commodity and material efficiency, recycling management, sustainable water management and sustainable mobility.
These are dynamic markets: Companies are growing very fast, projects are steadily increasing in number and size, internationalisation is forging ahead and subsidy programmes are flourishing nationally and internationally. These trends are already well in evidence and will intensify further in the coming years. This is leading directly to challenges in the real economy, requiring financial solutions. Which is where BayernLB comes in. Customers of BayernLB are able to benefit from an extensive product line – ranging from growth financing and export and project financing to advisory services and the securing of subsidised loans. BayernLB has proven its expertise in the environmental technology sector time and time again.
