As part of the ‘develoPPP.de’ program, BMZ, for example, supports companies that engage in developing and emerging countries for the long term and that want to make their entrepreneurial engagement sustainable. These can include companies that pilot innovative technology, increase the standard of their supply chains, or invest in a sustainable training program.

The International Climate Initiative (IKI), the BMU's international funding program for climate protection and biodiversity projects in developing and emerging countries, began in 2008. This initiative also supports numerous projects focusing on ‘Sustainable Production and Consumption (SCP)’ – for example, low-emission public transport procurement, ecolabelling and the transformation of value chains in the tourism sector.

In addition, textiles, cocoa or palm oil partnerships between private, civil society and policy actors (multi-stakeholder partnerships) contribute to the implementation of the 2030 Agenda.


International Climate Initiative (IKI)

Since 2008, the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU) has been financing climate and biodiversity projects in developing and newly industrialising countries, as well as in countries in transition. The IKI is a key element of Germany’s climate financing and the funding commitments in the framework of the Convention on Biological Diversity. The Initiative places clear emphasis on climate change mitigation, adaption to the impacts of climate change and the protection of biological diversity.

Partnership for Sustainable Textiles

The Partnership for Sustainable Textiles was founded in October 2014 by German Development Minister Dr. Gerd Müller in response to the deadly accidents in textile factories in Bangladesh and Pakistan. The multi-stakeholder initiative brings together members from the industry (companies and associations), non-governmental organisations (NGOs), trade unions, standards organisations, and the German Federal Government.
Members are encouraged to join Partnership initiatives in production countries to foster structural change on the ground. They are also requested to uphold their individual responsibility in a structured, meaningful, and transparent manner. Moreover, the Partnership serves as a platform for dialogue and learning in the various issues related to the textile production.
The Partnership strives to improve conditions in global textile supply networks — from the production of raw materials to the disposal of textiles. The Partnership objectives concerning social and human rights issues are based in particular on the ILO Conventions, the UN Principles on Business and Human Rights, and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises.

Forum for Sustainable Palm Oil (FONAP)

The Forum for Sustainable Palm Oil (Forum Nachhaltiges Palmöl = FONAP) currently has 48 members, including companies, non-governmental organisations, associations and the German Federal Ministry of Food and Agriculture (BMEL). The aim of FONAP is to boost significantly the proportion of sustainably produced palm oil on the German, Austrian and Swiss markets and to improve existing standards and certification schemes.

The members of FONAP have publicly committed to using only sustainably produced palm and palm kernel oil in their products. They also undertake to ensure the traceability of the palm oil they use and to comply with certain add-on criteria that are not yet covered by the certification systems.
