German economy able to cope with increased climate protection

In the opinion of most German top managers increased climate protection will have no negative consequences to the German economy. This is the finding of a survey among 646 representative leaders from business, politics and administration which was conducted by the Allensbach Institute (IfD) on behalf of the “Capital” business magazine.

According to this study, 80 percent of those questioned think that companies are flexible enough to react to stricter requirements imposed by increased climate protection. Just 17 percent believe that the German economy can not cope with these new requirements. Among top managers 75% hold the opinion that German companies are able to adapt to the stricter requirements without disadvantages. More details can be gathered from the “Capital” 8/2007 edition which is released today. GERMAN
