Sustainability in the MAX MAG
The Communications Department of the MPG publishes the staff magazine “MAX MAG”. The Communications Department is also very committed to a sustainable transformation of the MPG, and many staff members from the MPG's Press and Communications Department are involved in the Max Planck Sustainability Network. The communications department has dedicated the current issue (October 2021) to sustainability, which we are very pleased about. Of course, the Max Planck Sustainability Network is also involved!
In demand: interviews with network members: Ideas, wishes and goals
CO2 Evaluierung am MPI für Astronomie in Heidelberg und MPI für Physik in München: Wie viel CO2 verbraucht mein Institut eigentlich und welche Tätigkeiten haben den größten Einfluss?
