Tropica Verde and the transparency commitment according to the requirements of the ITZ


Trust and transparency are the deciding factors for our work. TROPICA VERDE therefore supports the transparency requirements of the „Initiative Transparent Civil Society (ITZ)“ with a commitment to publish the required information transparently in accordance with the guidelines of the ITZ Guide.

Background information on the ITZ and the institutions that sponsor the initiative can be found on the website of Transparency International Deutschland e.V.

You will also find the download guide there. The DZI is also one of the ITZ’s supporting institutions and has already incorporated a large part of the requirements of the ITZ Guide into the requirements for the donation seal.

Therefore, through the information available on the website as part of the donation seal, we have been meeting the requirements of the ITZ for many years. For this reason, the signing of the self-commitment declaration is a logical and consistent step for TROPICA VERDE in the sense of a complete transparency of our association.
