    By issuing this guide, the Council for Sustainable Development (RNE) and the Bertelsmann Foundation wish to encourage small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs)* in particular to apply the German Sustainability Code (GSC). We want to support them to the best of our ability. The Sustainability Code is not only a reporting tool that is tailored to you, but it also provides you with guidance relating to sustainability management. With its 20 criteria for sustainable management, drawn up in dialogue with stakeholders in 2011 and revised in 2014, the GSC helps businesses to see clearly what is meant by the term “sustainability”, to maintain their focus on the essentials and, at the same time, to attend to their responsibility towards the environment and society in a more effective and more ambitious fashion.
