G20 2017 Hamburg Business
In Germany, Hamburg holds no.1 rankings in the logistics, digital, creative and media services industries, and is home to many leading multinational companies. Hamburg is the third-largest site for civil aviation in the world: 40,000 people are employed by Airbus, Lufthansa Technik, Hamburg Airport as well as 300 related enterprises and research institutes.
The same is true for the wind power industry: two-thirds of global businesses in the field are located in and around Hamburg. In the renewable energy sector, some 25,000 people work for approximately 1,500 companies. With this in mind, it's no wonder that Hamburg was named European Green Capital in 2011.
