Then take part in our #sustainabilitychallenge: 'Reduce | Re-Use | Recycle | Recover - Challenges and strategies in the handling of plastics' and make a difference - shape the future with your innovative and sustainable ideas. 

 

We are always striving to develop and make our processes and products more sustainable. This is a continuous process: Innovative and sustainable ideas help us on our way. 

Beyond that, scientific findings are of great importance. For many years, the Indo-German Centre for Sustainability (IGCS) has supported students in developing interdisciplinary research, teaching, training and exchange in the area of sustainable development.

Jointly, we are carrying out a virtual workshop for students from India and Germany to develop and foster sustainable ideas.
