Sustainability and economic prosperity are not mutually exclusive.
The economy and sustainability are two concepts that, at first glance, could not be more different. A closer look, however, reveals that they are related. Economic growth and environmental protection depend on one another: a healthy environment and the careful use of natural resources are the prerequisites for long-term, stable economic and social development.

The responsibility for environmental protection and sustainability is increasingly taking centre stage in society and the economy. The expectations on companies are high, because they create a large proportion of greenhouse gas emissions, but at the same time drive innovation for sustainable technologies and services. The economy is undergoing fundamental change in many sectors. It is becoming increasingly clear: sustainability and economic prosperity are not mutually exclusive. We help drive the transformation forward, whether it’s structural change in industry, sustainable supply chains or the advancement of the German sustainability strategy.
