Sustainability and Resilience
The objective of our TUM Sustainable Futures Strategy 2030 is to position our university as a driver of sustainable scientific, economic, ecological and social development.
The sustainable transformation of our society is a challenge we meet with both enthusiasm and a deep sense of responsibility. We pursue a comprehensive strategy because ecological limits, economic resilience and social justice are inextricably linked with one another.
The goals we set are ambitious and take into account the complexity of sustainability as an issue, with all of its various mutual interactions. Here we focus on people: Sustainability lives on responsibility – and also through the day-to-day actions of our students, teaching staff, researchers and all employees.
The TUM Sustainable Futures Strategy 2030 is our holistic commitment to sustainable action and accepts the joint task of making TUM a climate-neutral university.
With this in mind, we have initiated a participative process together with the employees and students of our university. We have identified action fields, prioritized focus areas and defined concrete measures.
Our choice of research fields and objectives promotes interdisciplinary and transdisciplinary collaboration as well as international partnerships with the scientific, business and political sectors. We want the activities of our leading-edge scientists from around the world to embody resource-conscious working methods.
Ideas from researchers and students evolve into companies whose sustainable approaches transform our society and economy. We help our founders take advantage of these opportunities. These entrepreneurs combine economic success with ecological and social responsibility using innovative technologies and business models.
The challenges of responsible campus operations lie in the areas greenhouse gas emissions, mobility, biodiversity, equality and inclusion. As a technical university, we have a particularly great responsibility to help reduce CO2 emission through our optimal energy consumption. Our response to this challenge is our climate action concept.
We motivate and support our students in developing their own understanding of sustainability and equip them with the necessary competencies in interdisciplinary courses. We qualify our teaching staff with a range of continuing education opportunities relating to sustainability in teaching. We create a sustainable teaching and learning environment.
