Spotlight on: Making investments sustainable

Martin Geiger, head of DEG's Sustainability Department, explains in our new website section how the department operates.

In focus

The Programme that DEG carries out on behalf of BMZ helps companies realise projects with developmental impacts in developing and emerging-market countries.

Africa and other future markets

As a pioneer investor, we tap into future markets at an earlier stage than other financing institutions, and promote private business initiatives locally. We thus demonstrate that entrepreneurial commitment is also possible under difficult conditions. Africa is one of DEG's focal regions.
