The Bruno H. Schubert Foundation

The Bruno H. Schubert Foundation is a non-profit foundation based in Frankfurt am Main. It awards the highest endowed private environmental prize in Germany - for commitment to nature and the environment.

Our purpose is to serve the promotion of science and its practical implementation in knowledge and defense against threats to nature, animals and the environment. The non-profit foundation was included in the Hessian Foundation Directory.

The name of the foundation goes back to the entrepreneur and honorary citizen of the city of Frankfurt, Consul General Bruno H. Schubert (1919-2010).

Throughout his life, he had been committed to the protection of animals and the environment. In addition to his diplomatic commitment to Chile, Bruno H. Schubert was a board member of the Frankfurt Zoological Society and a recipient of high national and international awards. Consul General Bruno H. Schubert and his wife Inge Schubert established the charitable foundation in 1994 and endowed it with a capital of DM 1 million. The Bruno H. Schubert Foundation works closely with the Frankfurt Zoological Society.

Every two years, the Environmental Foundation awards the Bruno H. Schubert Prize in Frankfurt am Main. It honors scientific achievements and their practical implementation in the field of nature conservation and environmental protection.

In the three thematic areas of nature, animals and the environment, the Bruno H. Schubert Foundation takes over: (currently suspended)
