Eco-responsibility as a principle of political action
On the instigation of H.S.H. Prince Albert II, the environment and subjects related to sustainable development are among the most important political priorities in the State of Monaco, on both a national and international level. The actions of the Prince's Government take into account the topics of biodiversity, the management of resources and the reduction of greenhouse gases and also a specific policy towards the establishment of a sustainable city.
An undertaking at international level
In terms of the environment and sustainable development, the Principality has ratified many international conventions and agreements. The Principality's State departments ensure that these agreements are implemented on national territory, and play an active part in their governance during international meetings.

Preserving the natural heritage is one of the four pillars of the Principality's sustainable development policy. Practical initiatives include the implementation of inventory programs, cartography, monitoring and protection of marine and terrestrial biodiversity, but also through water resource management and the control and monitoring of pollution.

Transport is a major challenge in reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Every day, tens of thousands of vehicles pass through the Principality.
