Whether participating in UN climate conferences or spearheading the establishment of IRENA, Germany is in the forefront of international politics to protect the environment. At home, its citizens and businesses possess a heightened awareness of their responsibilities to the planet and act accordingly. Governments worldwide are increasingly struggling to secure the energy supplies needed to keep their economies running and at the same time tackle the problem of climate change. The only effective response to these global challenges is national commitment and international cooperation.
