Sustainable Business


IT solutions are part of the progress our planet needs

We are a partner that both develops and implements IT projects, that is familiar with industry specifics and understands customer needs and that succeeds in translating these into digital processes, offers or business models for our customers. This is also how we deal with sustainability: we know what motivates our customers and what requirements they have to fulfil.

Zurich develops Planet Hero App with adesso

Expanding their commitment to sustainability and supporting people in their own environmentally conscious actions was the goal our customer, Zurich Gruppe Deutschland, had in mind when developing the ‘Planet Hero’ app. Anyone who wants to live more sustainably can receive useful ideas every day from the app on how to become a ‘climate champion’ among their friends and family.

By doing this, the insurance provider is expanding its commitment to digital channels and relied on adesso for the app’s technical implementation.

Managing the energy supply of the future with the aid of a virtual power plant – the VideKIS research project

Small wind, solar and hydropower installations on their own cannot compete on the electricity market, nor can they perform system services such as keeping the voltage in the power grid stable. Primarily fossil fuels are used to deliver these services. In the VideKIS project, small decentralised installations are pooled together to form a virtual power plant, allowing them to be competitive with fossil fuels on the electricity market and in terms of system services. Artificial intelligence will manage and market the services in a central control system. In addition to adesso SE’s Line of Business Utilities, urban energy is also part of the research project.
