Baden-Württemberg is participating in a twinning project managed by the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMUB) in Israel: „Support to the Israeli Ministry of Environmental Protection in the Establishment and Implementation of a System of Integrated Pollution Prevention and Control (IPPC) and a Pollutant Release and Transfer Register” (PRTR). One aspect of this project is the setting up of an Israeli „Green Growth Knowledge Center”.

We will be contributing our experience gained from the founding of our environmental technology and innovation corporation, Umwelttechnik BW – Technologie- und Innovationszentrum Umwelttechnik und Ressourceneffizienz Baden-Württemberg GmbH. This will support Israel's Ministry of Environmental Protection to make the country's industry more environmentally friendly and resource efficient.
