Who We Are
As a German federally owned enterprise, the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a global service provider in the field of international cooperation and professional training for sustainable development. GIZ operates in more than 130 countries with approx. 17,000 staff members worldwide. We offer our partners in developing, emerging and industrialised countries tailor-made and effective solutions in all fields of sustainable economic development as well as environmental and climate protection.
What We Do
With almost 30 years of experience in Sino-German technical cooperation, GIZ works within the framework of the Sino-German partnership for the mutual benefit of both countries. Our portfolio includes policy advice, technical expertise, knowledge transfer, capacity building and development support in those areas where German know-how and technologies are world-leading. We provide our services through experienced German, international and Chinese experts as well as German partner institutions.
Who We Work For
In China, GIZ operates primarily on behalf of the German government and is currently commissioned by a number of German federal ministries – such as the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety and the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy. We also work for German federal states, the European Commission, the Asian Development Bank as well as clients from the Chinese public sector. During decades of successful technical cooperation in China, GIZ has developed close ties with Chinese and German government institutions. Building upon these networks, we also offer solutions for private sector clients in China to address sustainability issues.
