It’s been some eventful months since I joined DHI last year. I am thrilled to be part of this amazing company that has been delivering cutting-edge innovation for 57 years—all thanks to the passionate, bright and highly skilled people whom I now call my colleagues. They are the reason why DHI maintained good overall results in 2020 despite COVID-19 challenges. I am proud that we came through the year in a financially well position.
Our mission is to enable sustainable development of one of the world’s most precious resources: Water. Climate changes and a growing population are providing significant challenges for the planet, and we need to find new innovative ways to use, manage and live with water, and to protect water-related ecosystems. DHI has the skills and hence the obligation to help find these solutions, and all of us are determined to make a difference.
With the new DHI+ strategy, we will make this impact. We will use our substantial capability for innovation and technology to raise the bar for what good looks like. And we will not do it alone. We will use our global reach to connect with existing and new partners and customers in the global water community. Together, we can truly innovate to advance sustainable water solutions. That is what DHI+ is about.
Needless to say, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals are a natural and integrated part of our work, and every day we strive to improve our support to the SDGs.
I am confident that if we pool all our skills and knowledge together, if we unite and connect across the globe and across organisational boundaries, we will be able to innovate and drive sustainable development of our planet.
