Sustainability at Freie Universität Berlin
Universities—as the core institutions of the academic and educational systems—have a special responsibility with regard to making the world sustainable, and Freie Universität Berlin is committed to this task. It strives to increase sustainability across the university—in research, teaching, knowledge transfer, administration, and on campus. The university participates in the academic discourse on the global Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), adopted by the United Nations in 2015, and in their implementation in the university’s own area of responsibility. The Unit for Sustainability and Energy Management is responsible for the regulation and coordination of sustainability management.
