About Us

Der Bundesverband Nachhaltige Wirtschaft (BNW) – German Federation of Sustainable Economy – was founded as early as 1992. Representing its diverse members, BNW campaigns for the protection of the environment and a sustainable economy. BNW is a nonpartisan, non-profit and financially independent entrepreneurs association.

The board of  the German Federation of Sustainable Economy 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.
