Information about the Council

The Council

The Council for Sustainable Development was first appointed in 2001 and last reappointed in 2010. It advises the German government in matters of implementing and further developing its National Sustainability Strategy. The Council can also make suggestions and put its own topics on the agenda. It carries the issue of “sustainability” into society and the public sphere. The Council is independent in its choice of themes and forms of action.
It comprises 15 public figures appointed for three-year terms.

Sustainability

Sustainable development means giving equal weight to environmental goals alongside economic and social objectives. Sustainable business concepts mean that future generations are left with an intact economic, environmental and social setting.
