Background of participants

…through a partnership with FIG you support the work of the federation

FIG, as a recognised NGO, will work closely with their partners as well as the global family of UN organisations to support solutions to the 21st-century global challenges of climate change, food security, social justice and urbanization. A partnership with FIG means partnership with our profession, society and Earth at the same time” – Rudolf Staiger, FIG President

FIG works closely with multi-national corporations, national companies and small to medium-sized businesses through a strategic long-term partnership which generate a mutual beneficial Return on Investment and creates shared value. Please note that with the membership comes a membership certificate which you are welcome to use incl. the FIG logo to show that you are member of FIG – of the international community – but it is not and cannot be used as a certification of your actual work and projects in your company. FIG does not have a certification system and a membership of FIG does not give a formal approval of the work of your company.
