Federal State of Baden-Württemberg
Baden-Württemberg is a federal state in the south-west of Germany. Approximately 11 million people live in the economically strong state, the capital of which is Stuttgart. The Ministry of the Environment, Climate Protection and the Energy Sector is one of eleven ministries of the Baden-Württemberg state government. Priority topics of the ministry include climate action, shaping the energy transition, and species and nature conservation.
Baden-Württemberg is also very involved in climate action at international level and, in particular, is active in cross-border cooperation with neighbouring countries and states. In 2015, together with California, the federal state launched the Under2Coalition – a coalition of subnational actors committed to ambitious climate action.
