Environmental Policy


The ITA staff and the director have made it their task to make the operation of the institute as environmentally friendly as possible within the given institutional, financial and time conditions.

We make every effort to reduce heat losses and electricity consumption. In addition, all procurement activities are designed to be eco-friendly and we try to minimise the negative environmental effects of our travel.

In many of our projects related to our core issue Technology and Sustainability, we address socially relevant environmental topics. This includes climate change or the transformation of the energy system.

We also want to assume the function of a role model within the Austrian Academy of Sciences so that other research units and the Academy as a whole might pursue a similar environmental policy in the future.
