Achieving more together

International cooperation with Canada

The Ministry of the Environment has enjoyed excellent contacts with the Province of Ontario in southern Canada for many years. The main focus of this relationship is the Memorandum of Understanding signed between Baden-Württemberg and Ontario in 2006 and a "Letter of Intent" concerning institutions of higher education as well as science and research. A number of long-standing agreements are in effect.

Visit to Toronto

The visit to Toronto in 2011 by the Minister of the Environment Franz Untersteller concentrated on the energy topic. As well as meeting with environmental policymakers, the Minister also visited companies from Baden-Württemberg at the „Greenbuild” fair.
