UNIDO Investment and Technology Promotion Office Germany
( UNIDO ITPO Germany )

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 opened in 2017 at the UN Campus in Bonn. It was founded based on an agreement between UNIDO and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ). Its mandate is to mobilize investments and technologies for sustainable industrial development. Consequently, UNIDO ITPO Germany works closely with the German private sector, whose environmental technologies are internationally recognized. It aims to unleash the potential of the German private sector, especially SMEs, to engage in the developing world by mobilizing green technologies and investing in sustainable business sectors such as renewable energies and the circular economy.

This mandate is aligned with UNIDO’s vision of inclusive and sustainable industrial development (ISID). The United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO) is a specialized agency of the United Nations, which currently comprises 170 member states. The organization is headquartered in Vienna and maintains a field network of 48 regional and country offices around the world. UNIDO promotes industrial development for poverty reduction, inclusive globalization, and environmental sustainability.

In doing so, investment promotion and the transfer of sustainable technologies have been at the forefront of these efforts, and UNIDO ITPO Germany participate in this endeavour by fostering mutually beneficiary industrial cooperation between enterprises in Germany and Europe, and in developing countries and emerging economies. It is UNIDO ITPO Germany’s vision to make investments and sustainable technologies from Germany a catalyzer in achieving the sustainable development goals by 2030.
