Foundation

The Baltic Sea Conservation Foundation was established in 2014, with the main aim of promoting environmental protection and nature conservation in the Baltic Sea Region.  Our headquarter is based in Greifswald, Germany at the eastern coast of the Baltic Sea in the state of Mecklenburg-Vorpommern.

Baltcf is administered along the “Principles of Good Practice for Foundations” – that have been agreed by the Association of German Foundations – and the Initiative for Transparency in Civil Society – coordinated by Transparency International in Germany. It is important for us to be transparent in the way we present our finances, our funding criteria, our organisation and the projects we support.

As a non-profit organisation, Baltcf is subject to the German foundation law. The foundation has no commercial activities. The Board of Directors and Board of Trustees work on an honorary basis and the administrative effort is kept to a minimum. The Managing Director represents the foundation in on-going affairs.

Sustainability plays an important role in every aspect of the foundation’s activities. Our virtues not only lie with supporting sustainable projects and advocating ecological responsibility, but are also fundamental to the management of our  assets. The foundation’s assets are invested according to ethical, social and ecological principles.

Baltcf further manages its office in accordance with the principles of sustainability. This is reflected in our internal procurement and consumption policy: We purchase consumables that have been produced sustainably and have an FSC, IPR, Fairtrade or Organic label. Our office is powered by renewable energy sources and we pay attention to the responsible use of materials and resources (e.g. paper, energy consumption, business trips).
