Institute:Department of Environmental Technology
Research Group:Sustainable Engineering
The Chair of Sustainable Engineering (SEE) develops scientific sustainability assessment approaches for products and technologies.
While environmental protection and sustainable development are accepted principles for political decision making and corporate strategies, organizations face challenges when dealing with the practical and substantial implementation of the sustainability concept.
How can the environmental and sustainability performance be measured in a scientifically robust way, especially with regard to products and manufacturing processes?
The SEE group tackles such questions by developing and applying methods and tools with a system perspective on environmental impacts and sustainability performance.
Our Mission: We teach and develop life cycle based solutions to measure sustainability for decision making.
Our Vision: We want to be a leading research group in sustainability assessment making a tangible contribution towards sustainable development.
