Welcome to the RAG-Stiftung!

The era of German hard coal mining ended, after 200 years of existence, in December 2018.

Since the beginning of 2019, the RAG-Stiftung, which was founded in 2007, has financed RAG’s perpetual mine management obligations related to coal mining. These are water management measures that will continue in perpetuity even after coal mining has ceased. The foundation finances these obligations through the income from its holdings and the income from its diversified financial assets.

The RAG-Stiftung also aims to promote the Ruhr and Saar regions as well as the town of Ibbenbüren by supporting educational, scientific and cultural measures related to coal mining. more
