The Prince Albert II of Monaco Foundation is a global non-profit organisation committed to progressing Planetary Health for present and future generations. Founded by HSH Prince Albert II of Monaco in 2006, the Foundation exists to promote a new relationship with nature and the innovations that can impact this change. The Foundation aims to bring humanity together to empower impactful solutions for our planet's biodiversity, climate, ocean and water resources.

Foundation around the world
Since it was set up, the Foundation has opened several representative offices around the world to broaden its influence: in France and the UK in 2007, Switzerland, the US and Canada in 2008, and Germany and Italy in 2009. In 2011 Singapore joined its list of offices, then in 2016 it was Spain’s turn to open a branch. The most recent office opened in Beijing, China, in 2019.
With these 10 foreign branches, the Foundation now benefits from a strong international network to support its initiatives and extend the impact of its work.
