UNIDO Investment and Technology Promotion Office (ITPO) Germany

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

UNIDO ITPO Germany considers sustainable waste management and green and resource efficient industrial production approaches as priority sectors in its work to promote investments and technology transfer to developing countries and economies in transition. We foster partnerships and networks and offer PREVENT members and partners to showcase and promote interesting and relevant projects and technologies in the field of waste management on our Investment and Technology Promotion Platform.

UNDIO ITPO Germany recognizes the need to apply circular economy approaches linking production and modern recycling technologies and the use of waste streams to secure a sustainable supply of energy and water for production processes.

In all technology and investment promotion activities, UNIDO ITPO Germany supports approaches that create value, and ultimately prosperity, trough extending product lifespan and relocating waste from the end of the supply chain to the beginning – in effect, using resources more efficiently by using them more than once. As the specialized organization of the United Nations for Industrial Development, we prioritize projects and solutions that are linked to industry and industrial processes and those that involve private sector players.
