Ini­tia­tive Trans­par­ente Zivilgesellschaft

Trans­paren­cy is a high pri­or­i­ty for us!

As part of the Ini­tia­tive Trans­par­ente Zivilge­sellschaft, we there­fore com­mit­ted our­selves in Novem­ber 2011 to pub­lish the fol­low­ing infor­ma­tion. In the cur­rent annu­al report, we report in much more detail on our objec­tives, activ­i­ties and impact. Since 2019, we have also had our green­house gas emis­sions deter­mined by the cli­mate pro­tec­tion orga­ni­za­tion atmos­fair and com­pen­sate them.

2. Com­plete arti­cles of cor­po­ra­tion and objec­tives of our organization

The objec­tives we pur­sue are described in the annu­al reports. You will find them, as well as our arti­cles of cor­po­ra­tion, in the pub­li­ca­tions sec­tion or at the bot­tom of this site. We also pro­vide infor­ma­tion about our mis­sion and the respon­si­bil­i­ties derived from it on the About us page and on the entire website.

3. Infor­ma­tion on tax concession

Due to the pro­mo­tion of the char­i­ta­ble, benev­o­lent and eccle­si­as­ti­cal pur­pos­es men­tioned in § 52 of the Ger­man Fis­cal Code, our work is recog­nised as non-prof­it mak­ing with­in the mean­ing of § 5 Para. 1 No. 9 of the Ger­man Cor­po­ra­tion Tax Act, and also in accor­dance with the cer­tifi­cate we have received from the Tax Office for Cor­po­ra­tions I, Berlin (tax num­ber DE 268 115 039). The cer­tifi­cate is dat­ed 16.11.2022.

In the case of dona­tions which we receive for the real­i­sa­tion of these pur­pos­es, we are enti­tled to issue mem­ber­ship fees and dona­tion receipts accord­ing to the offi­cial­ly pre­scribed form (§ 50 para. 1 EStDV).

4. Name and func­tion of major deci­sion makers

We con­firm that the bod­ies which have to make deci­sions bind­ing for our orga­ni­za­tion meet reg­u­lar­ly and that the meet­ings are record­ed in minutes.

Requests to our orga­ni­za­tion will be answered with­in a rea­son­able peri­od of time.

The annu­al accounts are per­son­al­ly signed off by two deci­sion-mak­ers in our organization.

Com­pre­hen­sive infor­ma­tion on PHI­NEO’s per­son­nel struc­ture can be found in the cur­rent annu­al report and online on the team page.

7. Infor­ma­tion on the source of funds

The PHI­NEO gAG is financed in about equal parts from three main fund­ing sources:

  • the share­hold­ers,
  • project-relat­ed fund­ing part­ners and
  • per­for­mance-relat­ed rev­enues (con­tract work).

Detailed infor­ma­tion on the source of funds can be found in the cur­rent annu­al report. The bal­ance sheet as well as the state­ment of prof­it and loss are avail­able in the pub­li­ca­tions sec­tion.

8. Infor­ma­tion on the use of funds

Infor­ma­tion on the use of funds can be found in the cur­rent annu­al report; the bal­ance sheet as well as the state­ment of prof­it and loss are avail­able in the pub­li­ca­tions sec­tion.

The annu­al finan­cial state­ments have been sub­mit­ted to exter­nal audi­tors for audit­ing. The audit­ing com­pa­ny pre­pared a detailed report, which was issued with an unqual­i­fied opinion”.

The audi­tor’s cer­tifi­cate con­firms that PHI­NEO gAG has prop­er accounting.

The focus of the audit was on the exis­tence and com­plete­ness of the report­ed rev­enues and the com­plete­ness of the expen­di­tures as well as the cor­rect allo­ca­tion to the ideation­al area, eco­nom­ic busi­ness oper­a­tions and spe­cial-pur­pose activ­i­ties. This includ­ed both sys­tem audits of the inter­nal con­trol­ling sys­tem as well as ana­lyt­i­cal audit pro­ce­dures and indi­vid­ual case examinations.

9. Affil­i­a­tion with third par­ties under com­pa­ny law

PHI­NEO gAG has no affil­i­a­tions with third par­ties under com­pa­ny law.

At this point, PHI­NEO gAG would like to dis­close its own­ers with a share of more than ten per­cent of the AG:

  • PHI­NEO Pool GbR (48%), rep­re­sent­ed by Dr. Anna Katha­ri­na Gollan
  • Ber­tels­mann Stiftung (12%), rep­re­sent­ed by Mr Ralph Heck

10. Names of legal enti­ties whose annu­al pay­ments rep­re­sent more than ten per­cent of the total annu­al budget

    There is no legal enti­ty whose grants account for more than ten per­cent of the total budget.

    CO² emis­sions and compensation

    We com­pen­sat­ed our emis­sions with a con­tri­bu­tion through a high qual­i­ty atmos­fair project (Gold Stan­dard and CDM cer­ti­fied; cer­tifi­cate as PDF).
