The German Council for Sustainable Development passed as a resolution the German Sustainability Code in its plenary session 13 October 2011. The Code was sent to the German Federal Government with a recommendation for implementation. In a database the German Sustainability Code visualises the efforts of companies to achieve sustainability. It thus creates a greater commitment to do so in a transparent and comparable manner. The development of GSC database is supported by a project of the Sustainable Business Institute by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research (BMBF). The German Council for Sustainable Development provides a broader basis for the realisation of sustainability. The Sustainability Code is suitable for companies of every size and legal form.

"Intergenerational Dialogue in Practice – Citizens Initiate Sustainability" is a contribution to the national sustainability strategy made by the Federal Government which jointly sponsors the competition along with the German Council for Sustainable Development. By staging this competition, the Federal Government and the German Council for Sustainable Development seek to honour and support the many forms of voluntary civil involvement.

Die Nachhaltigkeitsstrategie ist ein wichtiges Zukunftsprogramm, um „das Morgen“ zu gestalten. Die Bundesregierung wird sie bis Herbst 2008 aktualisieren. Doch die Umsetzung auf kommunaler Ebene entscheidet über ihren Erfolg. Nachhaltigkeitspolitik findet vor Ort in den Kommunen statt! Der Rat für Nachhaltige Entwicklung hat die einhundert jüngsten KommunalpolitikerInnen Deutschlands vom 12. bis 14. Juni 2008 nach Berlin eingeladen, damit sie mit ihren praktischen politischen Erfahrungen die Nachhaltigkeitspolitik der Bundesregierung auf den Prüfstand stellen.
