Over the last two years, the European region has continued to experience its fair share of challenges. These include the climate crisis and high domestic energy costs affecting the daily lives of all Europeans and also industry.

At Yokogawa, we strive to contribute with solutions, in line with Yokogawa’s Purpose, a statement that reads, ‘Utilizing our ability to measure and connect, we fulfill our responsibilities for the future of our planet.’

My goal is to support Yokogawa’s growth as the leading company in decarbonization and energy efficiency, boosting the competitiveness of European manufacturing.”
