With its different dimensions – social responsibility, ecological balance and economic capability – sustainability is relevant at every level. We see political participation as a fundamental prerequisite for taking truly sustainable action. Our approach goes well beyond what is required by law; we have set ourselves ambitious goals.
GIZ takes its responsibility for human rights seriously – not only within our company but also along the supply chain. At this point in our Integrated Company Report for 2019, we provide – for the second time – a detailed explanation of how we exercise due diligence in the field of human rights as part of the German Government’s National Action Plan for Business and Human Rights (NAP). This section also specifies the measures we have taken in accordance with the two human rights principles set out in the UN Global Compact. (© GIZ / N. Seiler)
