Topics such as climate change, sustainability, and the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions continue to be omnipresent. And who could be surprised, when one thinks of the potential global consequences if humanity doesn't manage to limit the rate of the earth’s warming.

Finally, just a few words about our team: this will be "my" last Newsletter, and I will now be devoting my attention to other tasks at Dillinger. I therefore entrust the editorship of the Newsletter 100% to the capable hands of my esteemed colleague, Lisa Peter. Lisa has already been involved in the production of the Newsletter for quite a time, and I am therefore pleased to wish her much enjoyment and many more fascinating topics!
As always, I wish all readers stimulating reading and remain with the most sincere best wishes
Yours, Bettina Huffer
