The Federal Government was early in developing a comprehensive climate-protection strategy. By resolution of 13 June 1990, the "CO2-Reduction" Interministerial Working Group (IWG) was established, under the direction of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). This working group's tasks include developing guidelines for policies and actions relative to climate protection, identifying needed action, highlighting potential for reducing greenhouse-gas emissions and proposing, to the Federal Cabinet, comprehensive packages of measures for reducing greenhouse-gas emissions in Germany.
