    For Our Planet and German Council for Sustainable Development forge alliance

    FOR OUR PLANET, the sustainability brand and initiative of BurdaVerlag, agreed to cooperate with the German Council for Sustainable Development (RNE). As an advisory body to the federal government appointed by the chancellery, the council initiates and promotes projects for social change to help anchor sustainability in everyday life.

    Making the future a place worth living and sustainable for all – this is what the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations are all about. Germany has set itself ambitious goals to be implemented by 2030 within the framework of the German Sustainability Strategy. And this is also what the Gemeinschaftswerk Nachhaltigkeit initiative is all about, based on the motto that an ecologically, economically and socially sustainable society can only be built together.

    Full speed ahead

    This is the common ground where FOR OUR PLANETand Gemeinschaftswerk Nachhaltigkeit meet, because the declared aim of FOR OUR PLANETis to motivate companies and people to adopt a sustainable mindset and act accordingly. FOR OUR PLANEThas the power to realise this goal: The brand includes FOR OUR PLANETmagazine, which will debut as a stand-alone publication at the end of September, the FOR OUR PLANET Summitconference and FOR OUR PLANET digital channels – in particular Instagram and LinkedIn, and the FOCUS ONLINEsection of the same name. The sustainability initiative also relies on the reach of BurdaVerlag’s strong brands. Many paths lead to the same goal: to reach people from various angles and call them to action.

    Together with the Burda publishing house, we want to bring the topic of sustainability even closer to the people and make it more relevant for a broad spectrum of the population and for a large number of companies and organisations. Through novel collaborations like these, we can better drive the necessary change. The RNE will also cooperate with other media in the future
