Our goal: Conservation of resources, more sustainability, more environmental protection


Die Stiftung Initiative Mehrweg (SIM), based in Berlin, was established in 1996 under German civil law as a legally responsible foundation.

It aims to provide sustainable support for the conservation of natural resources and the protection of the environment. The foundation is committed to creating the conditions to sustainably stabilise and increase the amount of reusable packaging in all economic sectors.

In cooperation with environmental and trade associations including reuse-oriented companies, individual key topics are (scientifically) examined in greater depth each year and demands for the promotion of reusability are introduced into the environmental policy dialogue.

Once a year, the Stiftung Initiative Mehrweg submits an activity report on the fulfilment of its purpose. The report documents our work and shows which areas were particularly important to us during a specific year.
