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.

Prof. Dr. Christof Mauch

Was können wir in Deutschland für den heutigen Nachhaltigkeitsdiskurs lernen? Wie wichtig ist der Begriff Nachhaltigkeit und wo hat er seine Grenzen? Wie sind Gesellschaften in aller Welt mit den großen Herausforderungen für Mensch und Umwelt – Bevölkerungswachstum, Ressourcenmangel, Umweltverschmutzung und Naturkatastrophen - umgegangen? Was sind die Lektionen der Umweltgeschichte für die Zukunft? Der Rat für Nachhaltige Entwicklung veranstaltet zusammen mit der Technischen Universität Bergakademie Freiberg, dem Sächsischen Oberbergamt und der Sächsischen Hans-Carl-von-Carlowitz-Gesellschaft zur Förderung der Nachhaltigkeit am 19. Juni 2013 seine 4. Carl-von-Carlowitz-Vorlesung.
