ALTOP Verlags- und Vertriebsgesellschaft

For more than 20 years, ALTOP has been one of the leading publishers on ecological issues and economic sustainability. It created ECO-World as a forum to promote the long term importance of ecological products and services and now operates for and together with consumers and companies. Providing them with the latest information, background knowledge and highly professional communication services, ALTOP supports their market penetration and promotes the green economy, social- and eco-business. As sustainability should no longer be a vision for the future, but put into practice in the daily corporate process, the leading business CSR magazine was born in 2004: forum Nachhaltig Wirtschaften. It inspires top decision makers in politics, economy and non-profit organisations with best practice examples. The cover stories of the special interest magazine get to the bottom of recent trends and developments. CSR professionals and sustainability experts are provided with the tools for a successful everyday business. The first magazine for international readers was published in 2008 and covers the latest trends and opportunities in CSR: forum CSR international. Beside publishing relevant information, ALTOP promotes the idea of a sustainable, green economy by organising events and and by consulting SME and and international companies.
