Sustainability Management

Since 2021, Zeppelin University (ZU) has sustainability management, which coordinates sustainability projects within ZU and beyond. The sustainability manager reports directly to the President and Managing Director of ZU.

Further tasks include

  • implementing and coordinating sustainability projects and events
  • Contact person for internal and external stakeholders interesting in transforming ZU into a sustainable university
  • Sustainability controlling and sustainability reporting

The working group "Sustainable ZU" was founded in 2019. It was set up by the Executive Board and the Presidential Board to coordinate and foster sustainability projects at ZU involving students, alumni and the university as a whole.

The working group is led by Sustainability Management and consists of members from administration (location management, financial accounting, alumni office), the President's Office (student vice president), research and the student body (student senators, student Zukunftsbüro). It picks up ideas from the university community and advises the Management and Academic Board on sustainability issues.

In addition to coordinating sustainability projects at ZU, the working group also aims to network with other stakeholders outside ZU. Furthermore, the working group strives for centralized knowledge and resource management.
