The KfW Group is committed to the German federal government’s sustainability strategy. Its social commitments encompass promotional themes such as the energy transformation, globalisation, demographic change and sustainable, results-based development cooperation. These themes are dealt with in individual meetings, information and discussion events, and in networks. The bank also has regular contact with other national governments to discuss the setting up of promotional banks. Over the years, KfW staff have regularly been seconded to key German ministries, including the Federal Chancellor's Office ("Bundeskanzleramt") and the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy ("Bundesministerium für Wirtschaft und Energie"). The KfW Group makes no financial or other contributions to parties, politicians or political organisations.
