Innovating for Tomorrow

Hello again, dear colleagues,

During my recent travels, I engaged in many fascinating conversations with colleagues across all GBUs. I asked them everything I wanted to know about innovations and the impact they make on the world around us.

Now, let's discover and celebrate what they have to share with us today.

Construction and Consumer (C&C)
