highlights of a year that moved us all
No matter what the future brings, we are always looking forward, planning for the road ahead, anticipating game-changing trends and leading the way with ground-breaking technologies. This year was different. It forced us all to stand still and to focus on the present. Every journey has its ups and downs and 2020 reminded us that we should always expect the unexpected. However, it also showed that science, research, technological advancements and international collaboration can help us tackle even an unforeseen crisis. The same values that have driven our work at Continental for almost 150 years have also helped us weather the storm, turn challenges into opportunities and emerge from a difficult year even more determined to keep the future in motion.
In our everyday work, we achieve excellence for our customers, but also for one another. The team spirit, supported by our company values, encourages us to look beyond individual achievements. This year, it motivated us to respond to the immediate needs of our customers, but also to the requirements of our society and the global community in a worldwide crisis.
Our enduring legacy looks back on almost 150 years of constant innovation. Our success in the present is always driven by a vision of the future. Today, that means taking into account sustainability, social responsibility and climate-friendly mobility in everything we do.
