Sustainable operation

The content on this page was translated automatically.

Central coordination structures, a controlled sustainability process and the combination of organizational measures for sustainability development as well as technical and structural measures for the energy optimization of buildings and plant technology are intended to counteract the increasing consumption of resources of a growing university and to strive for the goal of a climate-neutral university.

The Green Office of the University of Kassel introduces itself! As a central coordination office for sustainability in the company and on campus, the Green Office is committed to sustainability with a lot of dedication and real conviction! Opened in July of this year, the Green Office is already actively and participatively advancing the university's sustainability development with five new employees within five projects.

We let you participate in the operational sustainability development of the university: two interdisciplinary project seminars I Go: Green, which can be taken across all degree programs, will start in SS 2024!

Two I:Go Green project seminars get underway

Environmental Chronicle

Since its founding, the University of Kassel has focused on disciplines related to society and the environment. As early as 1975, Ernst Ulrich von Weizsäcker gave the university a sustainability profile, when this term was not even in use.
