The basis for the roadmap is a fully comprehensive greenhouse gas (GHG) balance of TU Graz, from the university infrastructure to the mobility behaviour of all employees.Based on this GHG balance, a roadmap was defined with numerous individual measures to achieve climate neutrality within the next decade.
To the roadmap to a climate-neutral TU Graz
As part of the measures that have been defined to support decarbonization, the Inffeldgasse Campus will become the Innovation District Inffeld.

News and Stories: Climate-neutral TU Graz
Solar rays focused on concentrator photovoltaic cells using parabolic mirrors not only supply electricity, but also thermal energy for industrial processes, heating or cooling. Three technological innovations significantly reduce costs.
In a meta-study, a research team from the Institute of Environmental Biotechnology at TU Graz has provided evidence that the consumption of fruit and vegetables contributes positively to bacterial diversity in the human gut.
The aggregation of data for modelling highly complex power systems leads to inaccuracies. With her ERC project, Sonja Wogrin wants to change this and make the planning of future energy systems much more efficient.
Urgent questions from the energy industry and energy analytics are the focus of the research centre ENERGETIC, whose opening on 14th April will be flanked by a deep dive workshop on Europe’s energy supply organised by the World Energy Council.
Energy-intensive industries (EIIs) must drastically reduce their dependence on fossil fuels if the EU is to be climate neutral by 2050. A consortium consisting of representatives from industry, interest groups and science present solutions on how to switch to 100 per cent renewable energies.
On its way to climate neutrality by 2030, TU Graz is working together with ÖBB as a mobility partner. The goal is to increase employees’ awareness of climate-friendly travel through targeted offers and to further reduce the University’s mobility-induced greenhouse gas emissions.
Alexander Passer is the new Professor of Sustainable Construction at TU Graz. The focus is on life-cycle-based sustainability assessment and low-emission, climate-robust construction methods. The professorship is endowed by the Trade Association of the Stone and Ceramics Industry.
Climb aboard, sit back comfortably in the compartment, relax and travel with a clear conscience. That's what travelling by train is all about. So, everything on track? As a sustainable means of transport, rail has the edge. But all told, there is still potential for mitigation of environmental…
TU Graz, voestalpine, ÖBB, Siemens Mobility Austria and Virtual Vehicle pool their railway expertise. The Research Cluster Railway Systems research initiative marks the start of measures aimed at further enhancing the competitiveness of the railway through sustainable overall optimization.
Studies at TU Graz show that the older an traction battery of electric vehicles (EV) is, the lower the danger it poses. Now the researchers and industry partners want to define parameters for the subsequent use of discarded batteries.
The Stones and Ceramics Association supports endowed professorship for sustainable construction at TU Graz with a focus on lifecycle-based sustainability assessment as well as greenhouse gas-free and climate-robust construction projects. The appointment will take place in the summer of 2021.
We have set ourselves the ambitious goal of becoming a climate-neutral university by 2030. With the support of all TU Graz members, we will achieve this goal together.
In the Field of Expertise Sustainable Systems, which encompasses all TU Graz research disciplines, TU Graz faces the complex challenges of climate change and conducts interdisciplinary research across faculty boundaries to find sustainable solutions.
