Ecological balance

GIZ is constantly striving to improve its ecological balance. This involves consuming fewer resources, reducing our greenhouse gas emissions and making our building projects more sustainable.

Note: Our climate and environmental data for 2021 and the related reports in the section on ecological balance will be updated in the third quarter of 2022. That is why, alongside current information about climate and environmental management at GIZ, there is a link to the relevant pages from the Integrated Company Report 2020.
