The 100-Day Program: Sustainability

In 2021, TU Berlin concluded a climate protection agreement with the State of Berlin. In doing so, we committed to reducing our direct and indirect CO2 emissions by at least 25 percent by 2030.  We now need to create a climate audit for TU Berlin to establish a baseline value. At the same time, we want to start implementing concrete measures. We will continue and strengthen the University's existing sustainability and climate protection initiatives. Using interactive formats, we want to involve more people at TU Berlin in shaping these initiatives. The more TU members involved, the better.

We aim to have achieved the following goals after 100 days

  • We have developed a systematic process for drafting a climate audit for TU Berlin with the goal of completing the audit by the end of 2022. The technical expertise of the relevant academic chairs and research groups at TU Berlin will be involved in this process.
     
  • We have completed planning for a pilot measure for climate neutrality at TU Berlin for implementation in 2022. This will be undertaken working together with the Climate Action Task Force.
     
  • Together with TU Berlin members, we have staged a hackathon on making TU Berlin climate neutral. We will present the solution strategies and results publicly on our website.
     
  • The regular integration of teaching content and learning objectives relating to sustainability in all degree programs will be continued. An easily accessible overview of how sustainable development is implemented in individual subject areas has been created.
