About Dr. Hans Rüdiger Lange
What motivates you in your work?
I am motivated by working on customized technical solutions in client projects, from clients in the Black Forest to clients in China. We enable our customers to save resources with intelligent technologies and innovative measures and to contribute to climate protection. A technologically extraordinarily exciting job! Achieving important goals with interesting people – what more could you want?
I am a physicist and business economist because…
I have always wanted to work on the great challenges and latest technical developments of my time – in a technologically innovative and economically effective way. That’s why physics, that’s why business administration. And that is also why I came to ÖKOTEC in 2021: To work on the challenge of climate change and to develop further in the process. That, too, is education – lifelong, always new.
What are the biggest challenges facing our customers in meeting climate protection targets?
Climate protection is demanding because we can’t focus on one thing only, but have to keep an eye on “everything”.
