About Us

UnternehmensGrün (UG©) – the German Federal association of green economy – was founded as early as 1992. Representing its diverse members, UG© campaigns for the protection of the environment and a sustainable economy. UG© is a nonpartisan, non-profit and financially independent entrepreneurs association. .

The board of UnternehmensGrün is composed of up to 11 honorary representatives from our member companies. Three of them hold an executive position supporting the office in its management activities; one holds the position of the treasurer.

The board regularily meets to deliberate the strategic direction of the association. Twice per year the board holds lobby meetings with political decision-makers called “BerlinTage” to discuss current economic-political issues. Special emphasis is placed on promoting key aspects of the sustainable medium-sized business economy.

The office is located in Berlin.

Our members are mainly small and medium-sized businesses, who have a common interest in operating in a sustainable and responsible manner. They come from all different economic sectors – from engineering, metalwork or the renewable energy sector to business consultancies, advertising agencies, a brewery, law firms or driving schools.
