Energy, mobility, information, as well as climate and the environment are central research topics of Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT). As one of the biggest employers in the region, however, KIT also feels responsible for making its acting more sustainable. The KIT Master Plan 2030 now sets the course for sustainable development of KIT’s energy supply systems and buildings. As a symbol of its ambitious goals in sustainable campus development, KIT will plant a tree and early-blossoming plants on the area between the audimax and the Material Research Center (MZE) on Tuesday, February 14, 12.00 a.m. Representatives of the media are cordially invited.



Being “The Research University in the Helmholtz Association”, KIT creates and imparts knowledge for the society and the environment. It is the objective to make significant contributions to the global challenges in the fields of energy, mobility, and information. For this, about 10,000 employees cooperate in a broad range of disciplines in natural sciences, engineering sciences, economics, and the humanities and social sciences. KIT prepares its 22,800 students for responsible tasks in society, industry, and science by offering research-based study programs. Innovation efforts at KIT build a bridge between important scientific findings and their application for the benefit of society, economic prosperity, and the preservation of our natural basis of life. KIT is one of the German universities of excellence.
