GERMAN FEDERAL MINSTRY FOR THE ENVIRONMENT, NATURE CONSERVATION, BUILDING AND NUCLEAR SAFETY (BMUB)
Since early 2008, from selling emission trading certificates, the Federal Ministry for the Environment (BMUB) has up to 400 million euros at its disposal to fund the National Climate Initiative. The Initiative consists of a national and an international branch. Its goals are to develop the huge available potential for reducing CO2 emissions in a broad and cost-effective way as well as to further innovative pilot projects.
Specifically, the BMUB is funding climate protection measures that increase energy efficiency as well as the use of renewable energies. Furthermore, the International Climate Initiative supports measures for the adaption to climate change in developing and emerging countries. It aims at providing new impulses to the negotiations about an international climate protection agreement after 2012.
Thus, the Climate Initiative makes an important contribution to reaching ambitious climate protection targets in Germany, Europe, and the world.
