Sustainable Region - Low Carbon Ruhr

  • Project no. 1163
  • Duration 07/2009 - 12/2009

The analysis "Sustainable Region - Low Carbon Ruhr" is commissioned by the Initiativkreis Ruhr GmbH (IR) and is being conducted in close co-operation with A.T. Kearney. There are three workgroups concerned with "mobility", "energy efficiency" and "energy supply". Within these workgroups nearly 70 participants from IR member companies and various scientific institutions have offered their co-operation.
The study aims at assessing the motivation, targets and chances for the Metropolitan Region Ruhr to become a "sustainable region" and birthplace of innovations.
