Humanity and nature make competing demands on the area around Emscher and Lippe. Our task is to balance these demands in a sustainable way. Living and working must be made possible here, as must the revival of living, species-rich river landscapes – not an easy task in a region that without our work would often be under water.

That is why we are able to carry out our tasks very cost-effectively. We are united by our shared goal of finding ecological and technical solutions that will create an attractive landscape around Emscher and Lippe – within the region and for the region.
