The Sustainability Contest

Contests raise awareness of corporate sustainability, make the issue more tangible and develop the company’s work in this area.

GIZ encourages an environment in which its staff see commitment to and the practice of sustainability as integral to their work.

The Sustainability Contest has helped attract crucial attention to corporate sustainability, in particular outside Germany. Since 2018, GIZ has held a company-wide Sustainability Champions contest. In its first year, five winners were selected from a large number of entries across a range of categories. The contest has made the concept of corporate sustainability more tangible for many staff members and has facilitated exchange and mutual learning across the company.
