Sustainability at the University of Mannheim

As a place of learning and research, the University of Mannheim assumes special responsibility to work towards sustainable development. In addition to conducting research on sustainability and conveying new findings to students and the public, it’s important that the university implements practical sustainability measures in order to fulfill this expectation.

At the University of Mannheim we are all pulling together to make the university more sustainable: researchers, teachers, administrative staff members, and students. We address the topic in courses, research activities and projects, and use sustainable approaches for the operation of the university buildings and during events. It’s important to us that all members of the university assume responsibility and seize the available opportunities to contribute to our common goal.
