UNIDO ITPO Germany

As part of the UN system, UNIDO ITPO Germany mobilizes investments and technologies for sustainable industrial development. Situated at the UN campus in Bonn, ITPO Germany supports investors and companies by facilitating technology transfer from Germany to developing countries and economies in transition.

Mobilizing investments and technologies for sustainable industrial development

The German UNIDO Investment and Technology Promotion Office (UNIDO ITPO Germany) opened in 2017 at the UN campus in Bonn. It was founded based on an agreement between UNIDO and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Its mandate is to foster mutually beneficial industrial cooperation between enterprises in Germany and in developing countries and economies in transition with a focus on SMEs. The mandate is aligned with UNIDO’s vision of inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID).

The private sector as the main partner for sustainable development

It is ITPO Germany’s vision to make investments and sustainable technologies from Germany a catalyzer in achieving the sustainable development goals by 2030. ITPO Germany contributes to this vision through the mobilization of knowhow, expertise, technology and capital from Germany, working closely with the German private sector, whose environmental technologies are internationally recognized. It aims to unleash the potential of the German private sector, especially SMEs, to engage in activities in the developing world by mobilizing green technologies and investing in sustainable business sectors such as renewable energies and the circular economy, creating long-term jobs. ITPO Germany supports German and European technology providers and investors to find potential partners in developing countries. The office also connects companies and representatives from developing countries with providers of sustainable and innovative technologies.
