    Goals / Remit

    Die Deutsche Umwelthilfe stellt ein Forum für Umweltorganisationen, Politiker und Entscheidungsträger aus der Wirtschaft dar. Unser Ziel sind ökologische und zukunftsfähige Weichenstellungen. Im Dialog mit Unternehmen und Umweltpolitikern entwickeln wir Chancen für nachhaltige Wirtschaftsweisen und umweltfreundliche Produkte.
    Gleichzeitig informieren wir die Öffentlichkeit. Wir machen Umweltpolitik und Umweltrecht transparent. Kritische Bürger, umwelt- und gesundheitsbewusste Verbraucher und Medien sind wichtige Partner. Gemeinsam mit ihnen setzen wir uns für einen schonenden Umgang mit natürlichen Ressourcen, die Erhaltung der biologischen Vielfalt, Klimaschutz, saubere Luft, nachhaltige Mobilität und Verbraucherschutz ein.
