Sustainability and climate protection are particularly important to the University of Kassel. The long-term goal is to promote sustainable development throughout the university. For this reason, sustainability should become more visible and tangible: On campus, in the delivery of teaching or in research. To achieve this, a variety of improvements are planned, such as the increased use of renewable energies, a more sustainable campus design, the promotion of climate-friendly mobility and sustainable procurement.


Transport and mobility are of central importance at universities. Therefore, the mobility generated by universities has a high relevance for the generation of greenhouse gas emissions. The goal of universities must therefore be to develop sustainable strategies and environmentally compatible concepts for socially necessary transport.
