Our tasks

Complex and diverse. Like Berlin.

Grün Berlin is a municipal service provider for the state, the senate and the districts for sustainable urban development. The Senate Department for the Environment, Transport and Climate Protection is the lead agency in this area. For 25 years, we have been creating green infrastructures and inhabitable public spaces of particular relevance to urban policy for and with the people of Berlin. As a municipal company, we translate political decisions and framework conditions into specific projects. In doing so, we embody a culture of good building. Good in the sense of the common good, so that Berlin remains inhabitable for all people, without exception, who are at home here and the city's guests. Good in the sense of responsible growth that contributes towards an environmentally friendly, climate-friendly and resource-conserving city. But good also in the sense of inviting all Berliners to help shape their own environment through participation and commitment. 

Our tasks are as multifaceted and complex as Berlin itself. From concept development to project and construction management, to management, to the active involvement of the Berlin population, or to educational work and the communication of our measures during ongoing operations. With our large, interdisciplinary network of experts, we have all the skills needed to create a sustainable, inhabitable city.

Whether it's urban squares, high-speed bike connections, parks, tourist guidance systems, memorial sites or visitor centres – in an open process, we bring all the relevant perspectives to the table, step by step – from the Berlin population to experts from highly specialised fields. With one goal: We create open spaces and green infrastructures for a more inhabitable, social Berlin that is barrier-free and open to all, while living up to its ecological responsibility as a metropolis in the 21st century.

Project development

Project development bundles all studies, needs assessments, preparatory measures, and the basics of financing to ensure reliable and efficient project implementation.

Project and construction management

Construction and realisation is complex. As an efficient service provider for Berlin and a public building owner, we develop and implement our projects in a quality-conscious and responsible manner, clearly, cost-efficiently, on schedule and with a large network of experts.

Facility and real estate management

We manage over 700 hectares of public open spaces for Berlin, some of the most beautiful parks in the city, and around 100 buildings.

Communication and participation

We communicate clearly about our activities, projects and plans. In doing so, we implement the state's requirements and guidelines for participation and citizen involvement.

Education for a sustainable future

There is more to an inhabitable city than just green infrastructure: Experiencing and understanding culture and art in public spaces, having fun learning more about our environment and its protection, and being informed and educated in a contemporary way. These are additional tasks to which we dedicate ourselves with professionally competent teams.
