The Berlin Summit on the Environment (German: Berlinumweltgipfel) was a four-day international conference held in Berlin between 2–5 April 2010. Organized by the Imperial Government of Großgermania, it sought to bring together representatives from all United Nations-recognized states, as well as numerous unrecognized states to discuss global warming, water scarcity, and pollution. Attended by representatives from fifty-five states, the conference led to the drafting and signing of the Berlin Treaty on Environmental Protection and Preservation.

Of the states that participated, fifty of them were internationally-recognized countries. A total of twenty-seven states sent their Head of State or Government, while an overwhelming majority of the states that did not do so sent their environment minister or foreign minister. A stipulation of Großgermanian Minister of the Environment Adelinda Schmidt, who organized the summit, was that all participants sent plenipotentiaries with Full Powers as representatives. The conference, originally scheduled for February but postponed due to the Frankfurt Olympics, was held primarily in English and German, with translators provided by individual participating governments.

The Berlin Treaty, the signing of which concluded the Summit, was drafted by internationally-recruited legislators, lawyers, and environmental scientists prior to the Summit's original date, and was modified by the same group during the Summit as various specifics were discussed and voted on by the participating representatives. The Treaty went further than previous attempts at environmental conservation, such as the Kyoto Protocol, by imposing specific measures on primary and secondary industries in order to preserve natural resources and cut environmentally-harmful emissions. Specifics of the Treaty include:
