This sustainability report outlines the steps taken by the German Federal Ministry of Justice and Consumer Protection (BMJV) until the beginning of 2020 to integrate legal and consumer policy into the target system of the Agenda 2030, and at the same time provides a direction for further action required in this area. The report serves to inform the interested public and at the same time is intended to provide BMJV employees with an orientation for the classification of their tasks within the global sustainability goals.
In view of the role model function of the Geman federal government in the transformation to sustainability, the BMJV can also be measured in terms of its own administrative actions on the UN Agenda 2030. It therefore strives for the highest possible level of sustainability in administrative action. All administrative measures check whether and how sustainability can be taken into account as best as possible. All options for sustainable action are used, which are reflected by new technical developments (e.g. procurement of electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles) and changing legal framework conditions (e.g. in the decision to travel by train instead of air).
