Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania: Ministry approves amendment to the statutes for the MV Climate Foundation

Schwerin (dpa/mv) - The Ministry of Justice in Schwerin has approved the amendment to the statutes requested by the controversial Climate Foundation MV. The ministry announced on Monday that this had been carried out in accordance with the Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania Foundation Act (paragraph 9, paragraph 1, sentence 2). The references to the gas pipeline project Nord Stream 2 have been deleted. The Ministry must approve such changes in its capacity as foundation regulator.

The MV Climate Foundation, which has been criticized for its support of the gas pipeline, had already applied to the Ministry of Justice on April 14 to have its main sponsor removed from its statutes. "We want to make it clear that the foundation no longer has anything to do with Nord Stream 2," said the foundation's board member and ex-Prime Minister Erwin Sellering (SPD) at the beginning of May.

The Climate Foundation Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania was founded in early 2021 after a state parliament resolution and was controversial from the start. One of their goals is to spread the idea of ​​climate protection. At the same time, however, the foundation should also support the completion of the Nord Stream 2 pipeline for Russian natural gas. The reason was US sanction threats against companies involved in the construction - the foundation was supposed to act as a kind of protective shield.
