As a non-profit institution under public law, the Sparkasse Karlsruhe feels responsible not only for the citizens and institutions in its business area, but also for the general public beyond its business boundaries.

For this reason, and in agreement with the then University of Fridericiana Karlsruhe, the Sparkasse Karlsruhe established a foundation on October 29, 1979 to promote outstanding scientific work that serves the common good, especially the solution of environmental protection problems.

The Sparkassen-Umwelt-Preis is endowed with a total of € 15,000.

You can find the actual announcement and more information about the prize on the website Sparkassen-Umwelt-Preis of the KIT Climate and Environment Center.
