Sustainability in the Pioniergarten

Our goal is to promote sustainability in all entrepreneurial initiatives and thereby increase the number of sustainable startup projects, including Social- and Green-Entrepreneurship. In doing so, all three dimensions of sustainability - ecology, economy, and social aspects - are equally considered. They are integrated into all consulting and other support services provided by the Pioneer Garden.

Equality in this context also means that sustainability strategies are integrated into business models. We follow the definition by Iris Pufé (2014): 'Sustainability means not generating profits that then flow into environmental and social projects, but rather generating profits that are already environmentally and socially compatible.
