TMG – ThinkTankforSustainabilty

The Töpfer Müller Gaßner GmbH (TMG) as a "Think Tank for Sustainability" supports the implementation of sustainable development targets and the Paris Climate Agreement. The responsible persons are convinced that effective implementation starts with the involvement of different actors and the consideration of different forms of knowledge. Only in this way are collaborative actions for transformation in sustainability possible. Inclusive development processes require the involvement of local and marginalized participants. The work of (TMG) ThinkTank for Sustainability therefore aims to listen to the voices of local actors in these global processes while at the same time influencing the global processes in such a way that they become effective for concrete transformation processes at the national and local level.
