Sustainability in Research
Making science greener
As scientists, we worry about the impact that our research has in the environment. We have created the Sustainability Group at the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics as a way to monitor the energy consumption and waste generation throughout the institute, as well as to raise awareness about environmental issues related to our research.
The Sustainability Group is formed by members of the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics that, as volunteers, want to tackle environmental problems faced in everyday work-life, from different valuable points of view. We are part of the Max Planck Sustainability Network and have the support from our colleagues and the Max Planck Institute of Biophysics Sustainability Commission. We welcome all institute members to join us!
