Prince Albert II Foundation

Located on the sparkling Côte d’Azur, the Principality of Monaco is one of the world’s premier destinations --- and foremost environmental stewards. For more than a century before “green” issues became a cause célèbre, Monaco’s “Navigator” Prince, Albert I, sailed the globe’s oceans seeking ways to preserve them. More recently, during his 56-year reign, Prince Rainier III ensured his nation became one of the most environmentally sensitive countries in Europe.

In 2006, HSH Prince Albert created the eponymous foundation which continues that commitment by supporting sustainable and ethical projects which focus on climate change and developing renewable energies; combating the loss of biodiversity; and improving universal access to clean water and fighting desertification.

As of March 2010, 127 international projects in locations as diverse as the Mediterranean Basin, Kenya, Mali, Indonesia and Brazil have been selected as recipients of grants totaling more than $US23 million.
