Researching for Sustainability

No sustainable development without a significant reduction in environmental pollution. Therefore, we conduct research in particular in the following subject areas:

- Climate-friendly mobility: Which measures and transformation paths are advantageous on the way to seriously reducing greenhouse gas emissions? What are the advantages and disadvantages or interactions?

- Clean traffic: What do motor vehicles emit on the road in real operation? How well do mitigation measures work? What is the proportion of high-emitting vehicles. For this purpose, we evaluate in particular Germany and Europe-wide remote sensing data.

- The bicycle is an example of a clean, climate-friendly, healthy and inclusive means of transport. Our research analyzes behavior, the effectiveness of interventions and opportunities to be mobile.
