Climate Protection and Sustainability

Sustainability issues and commitment have a long tradition in teaching, research and administration at Carl von Ossietzky University Oldenburg.

In terms of sustainability and climate protection, the university is active in a wide variety of ways and consciously assumes its role model function for the region and society.

Whether in administration by switching to renewable energies or providing bicycle parking spaces, or in the context of research projects as well as teaching - the topic of climate protection and sustainability is deeply rooted throughout the university. There are also a large number of sustainability initiatives at the student level.

Integrated Climate Protection Concept

As part of a funding project of the National Climate Protection Initiative, the university has been in the process of drawing up an integrated climate protection concept for the university since June 2021.

In the process, the university is striving to achieve climate neutrality.


Sustainability Reporting

The University of Oldenburg was one of the first German universities to set out on this path and published a sustainability report back in 2007. It has now produced its third report, which provides information about the university's ecological, economic and social achievements. It focuses on the university-specific implementation at the University of Oldenburg.


Energy Management

The areas of energy and energy management are among the most important fields of action for achieving sustainable development and climate protection. With the aim of continuously and sustainably reducing energy consumption, the University of Oldenburg implements various energy-saving projects and energy-related renovations every year.
