Environmental conservation is one of the greatest global challenges
The CCI advocates an economically-orientated but simultaneously sustainable environmental policy. The European Union, the federal government, the federal states and local authority districts have issued an abundance of legal regulations concerning the environment, which can hardly be overlooked any more. We help our member companies to find their way and we lend a voice to their interests.
Environmental and climate conservation requires innovative technological solutions. Environmental technology is one of the core competencies in the Nuremberg region. More than 700 - mostly young - companies and institutes are active here. The IHK strengthens the sectors' innovative and competitive abilities through applied projects between science and businesses as well as export initiatives in countries with particularly high growth.
