All the key players in the Principality are taking action, alongside Prince Albert II, to become exemplary in their approach to sustainable development and in particular in combatting climate change, both on their own territory and on an international level.
That is why, in June 2006, the Sovereign Prince created the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation. Its mission is to identify and support high-priority, emblematic projects, to accelerate implementation and achieve tangible results all over the world with regard to the sustainable and equitable management of natural resources.
"I decided to create a Foundation dedicated to environmental protection and sustainable development (…). This is a global challenge that requires urgent, concrete action, in response to three major environmental issues: climate change, biodiversity and water."
H.S.H. Prince Albert II of Monaco
The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation acts to protect the environment and promote sustainable development at a global level. The Foundation's activities are concentrated on three main areas: climate change and renewable energies, biodiversity, and water and desertification. The Foundation supports projects in three main geographical regions: the Mediterranean basin, the polar regions and the least-developed countries.
The Monaco Government Tourist and Convention Authority is working in cooperation with the Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation, notably in the "Monaco Carbon Offsetting" programme, to offer partners and clients the opportunity of offsetting greenhouse gas emissions related to their activities.
"Monaco Carbon Offsetting" is a voluntary, non-profit-making programme for reducing and offsetting greenhouse gas emissions. It is aimed at individuals, businesses, organisations and communities.
