Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) is a political foundation in the Federal Republic of Germany. In Germany, 16 regional offices offer a wide variety of civic education conferences and events while offices abroad are in charge of over 200 projects in more than 120 countries.
The topics of energy, climate and environmental policy are of central importance to the KAS and form one of their working areas. With events, studies and analyses, they accompany the political and social discussions on current challenges.

They give impetus to a sustainable approach to the environment at the national and international level.
