dynaCERT, Norwegian Cruise Line, TUI - the position in the new world

The world is currently experiencing a new normality at a rapid pace. The benefits of globalisation and its consequences are being felt and are hitting society with full force. Politics and businesses around the globe are taking responsibility to alleviate the situation with Covid-19. However, a pandemic is only over when a large part of the population has already become immune or a vaccine is available for prevention. Current measures, such as curfews, aim to reduce the speed of spread for high-risk groups so that hospital capacity is sufficient for intensive care patients.

About the author

Balance of actions

The moderate handling of responsibility is a balancing act. On the one hand, politicians and entrepreneurs alike do not want to endanger the lives of citizens and employees, but on the other hand, the economic survival of a company and a country is also a question of existence. A virus that brings death to a risk group understandably causes uncertainty in society. In order to stem the spread, the policy is taking extensive action in an urgent procedure, bringing social life and the working world to an almost complete standstill.

Questioning causes and consequences

Politicians have already taken up other issues in the past and are trying to exert a responsible influence with actions. However, there is also a great danger that decisions can be of a populist nature and be made in favor of voters. Besides national issues, such as the shutdown of nuclear power plants, global and overriding issues, such as climate change, are certainly a driving force for new industries.

There is no question that the climate is changing, as it has been for millions of years. Anyone who establishes a direct link between climate change, environmental pollution and the overexploitation of the natural environment can benefit politically and economically from this discussion. We live in a business world and it is therefore not impossible that political and economic interests go hand in hand.

Hydrogen technology makes diesel green

There is no doubt that environmental protection must be a top priority for politics and business worldwide. Simple solutions, such as sanctions for the disposal of waste in water and rivers, are a pragmatic step. Innovations that offer added value for society also find their way to the market. One example is the use of dynaCERT's hydrogen technology, which can be retrofitted to existing engines to reduce emissions of pollutants while lowering fuel consumption.

The technology generates hydrogen on demand and then adds it as a catalyst during combustion and thereby increases the efficiency. Retrofitting is environmental and resource-friendly and an economic benefit also provides an incentive.

Wanderlust despite curfew

The travel industry has come to a standstill due to the Corona Crisis and travel restrictions. Companies such as Norwegian Cruise Line and TUI are currently standing still. Share prices have fallen massively and currently offer a buying opportunity for investors who are betting on the post-Covid-19 era. The wanderlust of people remains even in times of crisis. Probably some loyal or potential customers are already planning their next trip. However, the issue of environmental protection will continue to occupy the travel industry in the future.

Cruise ships have recently come under criticism due to their emission of pollutants. Protecting the environment can provide a competitive advantage for companies. However, it remains to be seen whether the spread of fear and panic in connection with climate change is an effective means.

Encavis, dynaCERT, Verbio - continue to outperform with green stocks!

  • Environmental Protection

The awareness of protecting the environment and therefore reducing emissions is becoming more and more prevalent in society. Numerous industries are growing in the wake of socially, politically and fiscally motivated changes and demand sustainable products or solutions. "Green" investment has many facets. In the following, we present three companies that are dedicated to the topics of emission reduction and renewable energies. In the past, these stocks have been able to outperform the broad market enormously. Where is this trend continuing unabated?

dynaCERT, NEL, Plug Power - Who is working for climate targets?

  • Environmental Protection

The goal of reducing CO2 emissions by 55% by 2030 is Germany's contribution to the Paris Climate Agreement. The aim is to limit global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius by the end of this century - if possible, even to 1.5 degrees Celsius. To achieve this, emissions of greenhouse gases, i.e., primarily carbon dioxide (CO2), must fall significantly. So far, Germany is among the pioneers, having reduced emissions by around 31% between 1990 and 2018. A good start, but it is still far from enough. With Brazil, Australia and the USA, the leaders of significant countries, unfortunately, gave the rest of the world the cold shoulder. But the engineers of future technology do not care about the pronouncements from politics. They continue to research, for example, in Canada, Scandinavia and the USA - because the essential course settings happen now or never!

NIO, Tesla, dynaCERT - Mobilizing the future!

  • Environmental Protection

The good news for automotive suppliers is that electric vehicles still only make up a small percentage of the car market - at least for now. The bad news is that the increasing spread of electric cars is a significant challenge for automotive suppliers. Since these cars have far fewer parts than those with conventional combustion engines, manufacturers of exhaust and fuel systems as well as traditional transmissions are facing significant disruptions as e-mobility takes unexpected steps forward. The crux of the matter for electricians is still the availability of charging stations and the limited mobility radius. But this will soon change rapidly once the Corona aid pots are flowing into the green infrastructure.

Nevertheless, the e-vehicle is being fueled by government emission standards and incentives, especially in the USA, England, France, Germany and China. But the battery-powered vehicles will not pose a significant threat to the combustion engines until operating costs are about the same. In especially more impoverished areas of the planet and inaccessible zones, there is no alternative to the internal combustion engine; this is completely ignored in the public discussion. While the cost of e-cars continues to fall as technology improves, they are still far from being competitive. Nevertheless, if you look at the signs of the times, car companies have already invested billions in electro-related technology, so the course for the future is set.
