About us

The newly founded Sustainability Initiative was initiated by the academic mid-level staff of the University Hospital Cologne (GAMMA) and the Medical Faculty of the University of Cologne.

As scientists, physicians, teachers and researchers, we enjoy the highest level of trust among the population. At the same time, climate change, with its increase in weather extremes, heat waves, and zoonoses, particularly affects the vulnerable and those in need of treatment in society.

This website is intended to provide all research, teaching and clinical staff with the opportunity to learn about the activities of GAMMA Sustainability WG at the Biomedical Campus. In addition, this site is intended to serve as a central point of contact for information on the topic of sustainability and environmental protection, as well as for practical suggestions and tips for environmentally conscious behavior in the workplace and in everyday life. Only together and networked can we make our workplaces role models on the way to a sustainable future.
