The Ministry of Environment of Florenia is the government ministry responsible for environmental protection and environmental affairs. Founded by an Act of Parliament on 20 September 2013, the ministry administers and manages the protected areas of Florenia, of which there is currently one, Eran National Park. The incumbent minister is The Prince Zachary, who was appointed by Eran on recommendation of The Prince Nathan on 13 January 2022.

The Prince Nathan has also allocated the responsibility of enforcing hunting and fishing laws to the Ministry of Environment. Florenia has specific hunting and fishing regulations, which ban hunting entirely, along with mass fishing. Individuals may only kill three fish annually, and must do so with proper permits. The Ministry also has the responsibility of preventing deforestation, improper disposal of waste, and contamination of a water source or water supply. Scientific experiments regarding the environment must also be approved by the Ministry. Considering the paramount importance of Floren Pond to Florenia's national character and the large populations of flora and fauna in the Kingdom, the ministry's role is considered vital to Florenia's continued prosperity.
