COVER BERLIN CHA AND THEIR // FUTURE THEMES The Berlin Partner network now unites over 280 members cooperating for the benefit of one city. The network is where successful longstanding companies, dynamic startups, international players, committed middle-sized enterprises and leading science institutions come together in driving Berlin’s development forward. Today, the capital city’s business community plays an even more active role in fostering a strong and growing capital city, continuing to work hand-in-hand with the federal state of Berlin in a unique public-private partnership. FOUNDING MEMBER SIEMENS // Future of Work // Innovation // Digitalization The new Siemensstadt: freedom, tolerance and technological innovation in 940,000 m2 of space. The historic complex is the setting for a soon-toemerge new neighborhood that is open, diverse and technologically. The project, which marks Siemens’ long-term, future-oriented commitment to Berlin, aims to transform the Siemens area in Spandau into a stateof-the art location and incubator by 2030. By combining cutting-edge technology with modern lifestyles and the new world, the location will create an open ecosystem and great place for everyone to live that combines work, research, dayto-day-life and learning. SHAREHOLDER GASAG // Energy transition // CO2 neutrality // Digitalization Congratulations to Partner für Berlin! 25 years is enough time to notice one thing for certain, namely that change is a part of life, the market and politics. In 1994, GASAG was still a state-owned gas utility. Today, we are a comprehensive energy service provider that provides comprehensive electricity, heat, gas and cooling services. By means of the production and storage of renewable energies as well as innovative energy concepts for individual buildings and entire city quarters, we are actively committed to creating a carbon-neutral future. With this goal always in mind, we see ourselves as a loyal partner to the city of Berlin. In 1996, GASAG was the first company to sign a climate-protection agreement with the state of Berlin. Partnerships are the key to our success. For this reason, we look forward to many more successful years as a Berlin Partner member. INDUSTRY CAMPAIGN PARTNER OTIS // Digitalization // Urban mobility Otis is the world’s largest manufacturer and maintenance-provider of elevators, escalators and moving walkways at the interface between industry and technology. Since the 1980s, the company has been driving the digitalization of the elevator industry forward – by developing socially relevant and future-oriented technologies for urban mobility. Otis is continuously expanding its digital offerings in Germany, among others with the cloud based IoT solution known as Otis One. Related services enable more efficient building management, thus paving the way for predictive maintenance. 18

RACTERS SCIENCE PARTNER TU BERLIN // Digitalization // Machine learning // Sustainability The modern iteration of the Technische Universität Berlin was founded in 1946. At the moment, roughly 35,000 people from 147 countries are being educated for the industry and society of the future as part of over 120 degree programs focusing on engineering, natural sciences, planning sciences, social sciences, business and the humanities. With its staff of more than 350 professors and its roughly 20 spin-off companies each year, the TU Berlin is both a strong driver of the local economy and an important center of innovation for the entire capital region. The TU is heavily involved in the Einstein Center Digital Future (ECDF), the Weizenbaum Institute for the Networked Society and the Werner von Siemens Centre for Industry and Science. It is also a partner in the “excellence network” known as the Berlin University Alliance. ONE OF THE MOST MOBILE PARTNERS DEUTSCHE BAHN // Better track infrastructure // S-Bahn PLUS quality initiative // Smart solutions for the last mile Deutsche Bahn AG was founded in 1994 and is today one of the leading climate-friendly mobility and logistics companies in the world. Transporting 12.8 million passengers and more than one million tons of goods every day, the railway is the company’s backbone. Roughly 315,000 employees work to ensure environmentally friendly mobility and logistics and to efficiently control and operate the associated transport networks by rail, land, sea and air freight. DB AG has roughly 20,000 employees and around 800 apprentices in Berlin, which is home to the company’s headquarters at Potsdamer Platz, making it the largest local employer after the civil service. NOT-FOR-PROFIT PARTNER GRC // Climate change // Digitalization // Global migrant movements The German Red Cross (GRC) is part of the international Red Cross and Red Crescent movement, which makes it part of the largest humanitarian network in the world. Day after day, the Red Cross works to help people in desperate need of support. The GRC provides emergency humanitarian aid in roughly 50 countries and is involved in welfare and social work as well as civil health protection in Germany. Its 435,000 volunteers and 177,000 fulltime employees form a strong community across all generations. Companies can become part of this unique global network via donations and longterm collaborative projects, both of which serve to support the GRC in its mission to help those in need. 19
