CaRe working groups

In November 2019, the MPSN has worked out a catalogue of recommendations (CaRe) based on a voting of the entire network. The catalogue of recommendations collects ideas for sustainable measures covering a wide range of topics from various aspects of academic and work life.


The aim of the document is to provide recommendations for measures for the MPG to make our research environment more sustainable. The aim of the working groups is to evaluate proposed measures of the CaRe survey and to prioritise and analyse those according to i) impact ii) feasibility and iii) costs.

Five working groups have been established:

Including energy providers, energy management, energy consumption [more]
Business travel (e.g. Train instead of plane, CO2 compensation), virtual conferences, public transport [more]
Including packaging, sustainable food resources, information on planetary health, waste-supply cycle [more]
Topics including systematic waste management, sustainable office and lab materials [more]
Incl. sustainability reports, evaluation of impacts, organisational background of network [more]
