Our objective is to support German small and medium enterprises through engaging with emerging ventures from the global south in complementary, mutually beneficial partnerships which will promote the possibility of a thriving sustainability sector. Customers are becoming more conscious about life-cycle thinking and the environmental sustainability of products, this presents an opportunity for businesses which engage in innovative and environmentally sustainable corporate social responsibility. A crucial part of our work is to understand and identify areas of risk and opportunities for our clients. Thus, we provide effective bridges for mitigating the lack of information, and uncertainty via the use and transfer of academic knowledge to the business world.
Our different backgrounds, spanning engineering, economics and ecological construction to environmental sciences, international relations, political science and governance bring a unique perspective and ability to identify promising and viable partnership opportunities in the sustainability sector. We are also working closely with the MEG (MSc in Environmental Governance at the University of Freiburg) alumni network with over 300 individuals who hail from over 90 nations.
OUR MISSION & VISION
To foster global sustainability by providing German firms access to sustainable partnership opportunities in developing countries while building the technical and financial capacity of global south companies.
