Information about the Council
The German Council for Sustainable Development comprises 15 public figures appointed by the Federal Chancellor for a three-year term. The Council’s tasks include generating contributions to the national sustainability strategy, specifying concrete fields of activity and projects and also providing contributions that make sustainability a public issue of vital importance.
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.
