Energy

Germany could derive all of its electricity from renewable energy sources by 2050 and become the world's first major industrial nation to kick the fossil fuel habit, the Federal Environment Agency said on Wednesday. The country gets 16 percent of its electricity from wind, solar and other renewable sources -- triple the five percent level it had 15 years ago.

Parks and Protected Areas

Since reunification in 1990, nature parks in Germany have faced significant changes to their structure and purpose. Nature parks in West Germany were traditionally developed and managed as recreational facilities, their structure based principally around channelling and managing visitor traffic flow. Nature parks in East Germany, however, created only since reunification, have been developed with nature protection a key objective. As a consequence of this, the Association of German Nature Parks (VDN), redrew their guidelines in 1995 to reflect these changes.

FUTOUR has a wide experience of supporting structural and organisational change in large nature and landscape reserves, and can provide expert partnership in enabling such projects meet the needs of the future.

Biodiversity

Aims of the Business and Biodiversity Initiative

The Federal Environment Ministry (BMU) commissioned the technical cooperation agency Deutsche Gesellschaft f�r Technische Zusammenarbeit GTZ to press ahead with the Business and Biodiversity Initiative. The aim of this initiative is to involve the private sector more closely in achievingthe CBD objectives, through
  • active participation of companies and their organisations in the UN meeting
  • voluntary commitments by companies, consortiums and sectors regarding concrete contributions to the objectives of the Convention
  • presentation at the meeting of outstanding examples of specific commitments by companies or consortiums to the global public.
By signing a leadership declaration industry will be visibly involved in supporting the Convention's objectives. The goal is to win over companies from all sectors to greater commitment and concrete activities. Different sectors require different concepts and approaches, and some companies have more experience than others in dealing with biodiversity. We are not looking for the perfect company, but companies which are willing to join in a process and make biodiversity targets part of their company goals.
The companies can individualise the seven points of the leadership declaration by fleshing out the points with their own goals and measures.

Benefits for companies which join the initiative:

  • high media coverage before an international public
  • participation in fora and specialist events on the margins of the UN meeting
  • ceremonial signing of the leadership declaration
  • PR activities in the framework of the meeting (e.g. press discussions)
  • documentation of case studies
  • first hand information through direct contact to politicians, experts, NGOs and the press.
