CSR Directive Implementation Act (CSR-RUG)

In 2014, the European Parliament and the member states of the EU adopted a directive to extend reporting of large capital market-oriented companies, credit institutions, financial services institutions and insurance companies (the so-called CSR directive). The aim of the directive is to increase the transparency of ecological and social aspects in companies in the EU.
Germany has transposed the Directive into national law (CSR Directive Implementation Act). The CSR Directive Implementation Act came into force on 19 April 2017.

Global Compact Network Germany (DGCN)

The Global Compact was launched by the United Nations in 2000. It is a strategic and international platform for learning and dialogue on sustainable and responsible business, involving civil society organisations, business and national governments. Working with its partners, the Global Compact has shaped the international dialogue on sustainability and the development of business strategies and tools to achieve it. As a platform for multi-stakeholder learning and dialogue, the Global Compact convenes webinars, workshops, coaching, conferences and technical forums in its work. The Global Compact Network Germany (DGCN) brings together the German signatories of the UN Global Compact: there are currently around 660 companies – ranging from DAX corporations and SMEs to small specialist companies - and nearly 60 organizations from civil society, academia and the public sector. In the Network, they can get information about all the topics concerning corporate responsibility, the sharing of ideas and cooperation on practice-oriented solutions. The DGCN was founded on the initiative of German companies in 2000 as one of the first national platforms.

Too good for the bin! (Zu gut für die Tonne!)

Every year, around twelve million tonnes of food waste are produced along the entire food supply chain in Germany, more than six million of it in private households alone. The Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) has been showing how consumers can reduce food waste since 2012. With the National Strategy to Reduce Food Waste adopted in 2019, the Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL) is focusing not only on private households, but also on the primary production, processing, wholesale and retail, and out-of-home catering sectors. The aim is to halve food waste in Germany at retail and consumer level by 2030 and to reduce food waste along the production and supply chain. 
At www.zugutfuerdietonne.de, interested parties can find facts about food waste, tips for a more sustainable approach to food and creative recipes for the best leftovers. In the #restereloaded tutorials, Too Good for the Bin! regularly gives tips on reducing food waste. In addition, information is provided about the diverse activities also in the countries for the implementation of the national strategy. 
On the Twitter channel @zgfdt, news around the topic of food value estimation is tweeted. 
Tools such as checklists, training material, flyers, guides, apps for reducing food waste and projects that are committed to more appreciation throughout Germany are presented on the Too good for the bin! website: https://www.zugutfuerdietonne.de/jetzt-engagieren/ .
