At the upcoming Hannover Messe, international companies from the mechanical engineering, electrical and digital industries as well as the energy sector will present their solutions for resource-efficient, climate-neutral and resilient production from April 17 until April 21, 2023. Under the central theme of "Industrial Transformation - Making the Difference," they will show what changes industry can drive to reduce CO2 emissions noticeably and on a large scale.

Climate change, energy shortages, disrupted supply chains - these are just some of the challenges facing society and business today. Challenges that have one thing in common: Overcoming them lies in the consistent use of high technology and innovative industrial solutions. "Under the central theme 'Industrial Transformation - Making the Difference', Hannover Messe will show what difference exhibiting companies can make, what changes they are driving and what innovations they are developing, on the way to a climate-neutral industry," says Dr. Jochen Köckler, Chairman of the Board of Management of Deutsche Messe. "Corporations, SMEs, startups as well as science, politics and society are challenged together. Only by joining forces can we succeed in sustainably securing industrial production and thus our prosperity and our future, while at the same time advancing climate protection."
