Environment and sustainability
Focus of funding and promotional activity
Water shortage, loss of biodiversity, demographic explosion, dwindling resources and climate change: these challenges all make it urgently necessary to forge tighter links between economic and ecological matters in the interests of sustainable development. KfW Development Bank is committed to the concept of sustainability, an economic system that safeguards the livelihood and quality of life for the coming generations, too. This is why KfW considers the promotion of ecologically sound, socially just and economically robust developments in partner countries to be its core task, and to drive change forward through "green growth".
