We, the science, study and work location Paderborn University, align our actions sustainably in order to do justice to global responsibility and a sustainable shaping of society, intergenerational justice and the preservation of the natural foundations of life. We are guided by the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations, the EU Green Deal and the goals of the Paris Climate Agreement.
Responsible use of natural resources, equal access to clean water, modern energy supply and quality education are fundamental challenges of our time. The United Nations has therefore set them out in the 17 goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. In addition, the European Commission adopted the EU Green Deal in 2019. The goal is to emit no more net greenhouse gases by 2050, to decouple growth from resource use and to leave no one, neither people nor regions, in the lurch.
