Not only among small talk topics, weather and climate take a very central role. They influence us. In many sectors of the economy, they are at least important factors, if not the most important. Tourism, agriculture, logistics and mobility, the energy industry of the future and the construction industry – hardly any sector of the economy is independent of the weather. And both short-term events and long-term developments have profound effects.
Meteorological information is becoming massively more important in order to better counter risks to the economy and society influenced by weather and climate and to take advantage of emerging opportunities.
