Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety

What is Germany doing to protect the climate? How can we make sure that energy remains affordable for everyone? What happens to old nuclear power plants? The Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety, BMUB for short, is responsible for defining and implementing sustainable environmental policy. The BMUB includes the Federal Environmental Agency, the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation and the Federal Office for Radiation Protection.
