Appeal towards the German Government

A wide range of industries support the appeal of the "2 Degrees" Foundation directed towards the German Federal Government for crisis management and sustainability.

This means that the measures to overcome the corona and climate crises should be closely interlinked in economic policy terms. Relevant economic and investment programs should be systematically geared towards climate-friendly development.
Climate policy measures must be consistently pursued in order not to jeopardize investments and projects already made. Building on what has been achieved so far means planning security for the economy.
