To us, proactive thinking means, above all, exploring contents.

We deal with a wide range of relevant issues at the interface between environmental protection and international co-operation. In our view, sustainable development agreements are not separate from the processes that lead to them - they are directly related to one another. We contribute our specialist expertise, our solution-oriented thinking, our creativity and our experience to every new task that we address.
