WHAT EXACTLY DOES DEG REQUIRE FROM ITS CUSTOMERS RELATED TO E&S MANAGEMENT?


DEG invests in undertakings that contribute to sustainable development of the local population: We finance investments by enterprises which share our focus on long- term success rather than on short-term profit, and operate accordingly. In this context, environmental protection and compliance with social standards are decisive yardsticks for DEG to become involved. Good corporate governance plays an important role.
