From early on, DEROSSI Invest GmbH has focused its engagement on economically and environmentally sustainable development prospects. We strive for regularly participating in innovative projects, particularly R&D and pilot projects with reputable institutions, such as the Fraunhofer Society and various universities.
Digitization and mobilization play a decisive role in all areas of our engagement. They are the key developments of our time, which set the course for the future. As the pioneer and engine behind new developments, we are committed to promoting and driving further progress in the field. We also believe that maintaining close links between business and science is crucial to ensure that we continue to create sustainable solutions and integrate them in our network.
Our associate companies are positioned on the international market. We promote them by providing and/or procuring capital and by guiding and encouraging them to develop an entrepreneurial mindset and approach.
The use of integrated technologies and the explosion in data volumes create the need for entirely new business models, particularly when dealing with business customers who are digitizing and mobilizing their own business models. Rapidly advancing digitization, the Internet of Things and the opportunities created by the 5G standard demand completely new system solutions. This has implications for hardware, data handling, distribution and service components and includes the need to develop and learn quickly.
Our subsidiary, KOMSA, has been constantly shaping and developing the world of digital and mobile communication since 1992. As a link between industry and retail partners and consumers, KOMSA is a pioneer of digitization and a market leader in the ict sector (information and communication technology).
We are facing unprecedented challenges caused by the constant growth in the world’s population, the decline in land available for cultivation, the extensive destruction and pollution of the natural environment and the scarcity of almost all natural resources. It is our duty to use resources more responsibly than ever and to create solutions for future generations. That is why we are in favor of natural, local products and regional processing.
Digitization also has a decisive supporting role in the agricultural sector. For example, smart farming is helping to save one of our most valuable resources – water – and prevents the intensive use of fertilizers and pesticides. This is made possible by ongoing soil and weather analyses using smart sensors, which work in the same way as sensor technology and automation in machines and processes.
Digitization is also supporting farmers involved in livestock production. Monitoring the climate inside stables, the performance of individual animals and their food intake can help to reduce stress in animals, reduce the widespread use of medication and optimize efficiency.
When choosing partnerships, we are particularly interested in resource-saving and ecologically responsible, innovative businesses from Saxony that concentrate their efforts on agriculture and researching new methods. Our affiliated businesses cover the whole of the agricultural value chain, thereby serving the entire agricultural sustainability cycle.
Forests provide raw materials, places of relaxation and a lifeline. They fulfil important functions for the economy, society, and most importantly, for the environment. The potential uses of wood are not widely known in many sectors, despite its diverse applications. As a result, raw materials are still far from being from being put to optimal use.
In addition, forests and trees form part of traditional and innovative value creation processes. We have a clear, long-term and sustainable view on the management of this resource and its importance to the regional supply chain. Working sustainably in tune with nature and promoting the responsible use of resources is our aim for our own work, and is also what we require of those who work with us. We promote developments, innovation and research projects that support these aims, as well as novel uses for trees through the latest technology and digital elements.
