The CO2 team at the Center for Global Change and Sustainability has been compiling the BOKU's greenhouse gas balances since 2013.

These balance sheets are an important control and steering instrument and form the basis for strategic decisions and objectives in the context of sustainability.

With the CO2 balance, the fields of action - above all electricity, district heating and business trips - are visible. Therefore, targeted measures can be defined and continuously improved in order to be aligned with the BOKU climate neutrality strategy. 

The GHG accounting tool (Climcalc 2.0) was developed as part of a project in the context of the Working Group CO2-neutral universities (a WG of the Alliance for Sustainable Universities).

The team at the Competence Center for Climate Neutrality is now also passing on its expertise to other universities and schools in the form of workshops.
