  • Dear Readers!

    Family-run companies generate almost 50% of the German economy’s total turnover and provide over 50% of all jobs in our country. Our ‘Mittelstand’ (i.e. our SMEs) – which, we are constantly being told, is held in envy around the world – is the anchor that gives Europe’s largest national economy the stability it needs, driving growth across the whole of the continent. 83% of all apprenticeship jobs in Germany are created by SMEs. 1,307 of the globally identified 2,700 ‘Hidden Champions’ are German Mittelstand firms. So what have these facts got to do with public private partnerships?

    They are an opportunity for local authorities and their companies to become a part of this exceptional success story. Family-owned businesses focus on values, traditions and reliability across generations. More often than not, they are deeply rooted in their regions and actively involved in their communities. And it is this that enables them to enjoy long-term success. We believe it to be a good decision when a municipal partner chooses to have its essential public services provided by a joint venture with a private-sector partner. Learning from mistakes made and drawing the right conclusions for the future are two further strengths of family-run companies that have been able to enjoy decades of success on their markets thanks to their high levels of expertise and their special ethos.

    The need for greater efficiency by, on the one hand, dividing up tasks and specialising in specific areas and, on the other, keeping costs under control means that once again public private partnerships are being viewed as a future-proof business model.

    For decades now, REMONDIS has been showing every day that better results can be achieved by working together. With 64 PPP companies and a whole range of third-party service provision agreements, we have perfected the public private partnership concept for all essential public services – from waste management, to water management, all the way through to public transport – to the benefit of both parties. Working together with its municipal partners, REMONDIS delivers services to over twelve million people living in Germany. Local authorities and their residents always receive the highest quality of service possible and have the peace of mind that their fees and charges will remain stable over a long period of time.

    As a rule, public private partnerships are a real blessing for a council’s budget as they are a reliable source of tax revenue. The most can be made of the opportunities to optimise operations. Successful collaboration work with the private sector preserves public property and creates jobs. Fees and charges are stabilised and the pressure on the public purse is relieved.

    This latest special issue is dedicated to the subject of public private partnerships and takes an in-depth look at the various PPP models, the advantages for local authorities and their residents and the positive impact they have on jobs, the environment and the local economy. Councils wishing to achieve long-term budget stability, high quality public services and maximum levels of sustainability by operating an environmentally responsible circular economy will find some valuable suggestions and accounts in this issue to help them with their decision-making processes.

    We look forward to working with you!

    Yours Ludger Rethmann

A well-respected name across the country

More than 60 public-private companies are already delivering services to over twelve million people in twelve federal states and three city states. Throughout the country, the PPP companies, in which REMONDIS owns a share, employ more than 9,000 people.

  • Water / Wastewater

    Public sector partners across Germany already depend on REMONDIS Aqua’s know-how in the fields of wastewater treatment and drinking water supply. The company’s innovative spirit was once again brought to the fore recently when it revealed its new phosphorus recovery process.

  • Waste Management

    47 of REMONDIS’ 64 PPP companies operate in the field of recycling. Besides delivering essential waste collection services, the company stands out with its modern fleet of vehicles and innovative recycling facilities.

  • Energy

    A number of REMONDIS’ PPP companies are already delivering energy services. This area of business is experiencing strong growth as the transition from fossil fuel to renewables progresses.

  • Public Transport

    Some regions have been relying on REMONDIS to provide public transport services for many years now. The company has high levels of expertise when it comes to mobility – and not just since the RETHMANN Group acquired a share in Transdev, the world’s largest public transport company.
