Finances

A pact with the future: The establishment of the RAG-Stiftung in June 2007 was a major step toward the socially acceptable discontinuation of hard coal mining in Germany in the period until the end of 2018. Most importantly, it also created the financial foundation for the tasks that must be carried out in perpetuity after the end of active mining.

In the post-mining era, we finance the perpetual obligations resulting from the hard coal mining industry. In the former coal mining regions, the perpetual obligations include pit water management, polder measures for regulating surface water, and ground water purification.
