German Sustainability Code

German Sustainability CodeGuidance for German companies in corporate reporting

The German Sustainability Code was unanimously decided by the Rat für Nachhaltige Entwicklung (German Council for Sustainable Development) on 13 October 2011. The transparency instrument aims at rendering companies’ sustainability efforts transparent and comparable.

Promoting the transparency of sustainability data as well as their standardisation is a key concern of Deutsche Börse Group as a marketplace organiser. Against this backdrop, we actively supported the dialogue for the development of the German Sustainability Code as well as the pilot phase and have published a detailed declaration of conformity towards the Code on a yearly basis since 2011.
