Germany falling behind on sustainability – Deutsche Börse


Germany is increasingly lagging behind other countries on sustainability, the head of group sustainability at stock exchange operator Deutsche Börse, Kristina Jeromin, told financial daily Börsen-Zeitung in an interview. Germany has long since lost its lead on sustainability, she said, blaming a dangerous insistence on preserving status quo. Jeromin argues that Germany urgently needs concerted action by government, the finance sector and industry. Pressure to act sustainably could also drive innovation and create new business opportunities, she said.
