Since its foundation, the Wuppertal Institute has been eager to make sustainability and environmental protection vital aspects of the building and the daily working routine of its employees.
Since 2010, the working group Sustainability Management has initiated and coordinated many activities in the field of sustainability. The working group has systematically taken stock of the status quo and continuously taken action in the central fields of energy, mobility and purchase. Furthermore, the working group also supervises the internal sustainability communication, so as to broadly integrate the staff. The exchange of experience on sustainability management with other institutions of the Ecornet is part of the working group’s activities as well.
The Wuppertal Institute has been a member of the sponsorship association of the B.A.U.M. since December 2017 and ensures the implementation of the B.A.U.M. code for sustainable management.
