What is the Green Office?

The LMU Green Office is the central contact and coordination point for sustainability and climate protection at Campus Martinsried. It is a joint initiative of the LMU unit Occupational Safety and Sustainability, the Faculty of Biology and the Biomedical Center (BMC). Its goal is to improve sustainability on campus and promote collaboration. To achieve this goal, we gather and communicate information needed for practical implementation as well as initiate and support sustainable projects. For this, we work closely with students, staff, lecturers, researchers and the student councils on campus.

Who works at the Green Office?

Currently, the Green Office is run by two student assistants who stand up for sustainable change on campus out of conviction.

What are current projects?

  • Certification of sustainable laboratory work: Our aim is to make labs more sustainable. For this, we are developing a concept in cooperation with the laboratories on how sustainability goals can be defined and implemented. Labs meeting the sustainability goals will receive certification.
  • Networking of all initiatives and actors on campus and beyond.
