Open Access Das CO2-Kompensationssystem an der BOKU: Ökologische und sozio-ökonomische Nachhaltigkeitswirkungen

This article is Open Access under the terms of the Creative Commons CC BY licence.

Die Universität für Bodenkultur Wien (BOKU) begann 2012 mit dem Aufbau eines eigenen CO2-Kompensationssystems in Verbindung mit BOKU-eigenen Klimaschutzprojekten in Afrika, Asien und Lateinamerika. Seitdem haben sechs der gestarteten Projekte über 40 000 Tonnen CO2 reduziert. Finanziert werden sie über CO2-Kompensation von Unternehmen und Privatpersonen, aber auch durch CO2-Kompensation der Flugreisen der BOKU-Wissenschaftler(innen). Die BOKU-Klimaschutzprojekte zielen nicht allein auf CO2-Bindung/CO2-Vermeidung, sondern auf weitere ökologische und insbesondere auch sozio-ökonomische Nachhaltigkeitswirkungen.

Keywords: CO2 compensation; Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs); climate change mitigation; least developed countries; sustainability impact

More about this publication?
  • GAIA is a peer-reviewed inter- and transdisciplinary journal for scientists and other interested parties concerned with the causes and analyses of environmental and sustainability problems and their solutions.

    Environmental problems cannot be solved by one academic discipline. The complex natures of these problems require cooperation across disciplinary boundaries. Since 1991, GAIA has offered a well-balanced and practice-oriented forum for transdisciplinary research. GAIA offers first-hand information on state of the art environmental research and on current solutions to environmental problems. Well-known editors, advisors, and authors work to ensure the high quality of the contributions found in GAIA and a unique transdisciplinary dialogue – in a comprehensible style.

    GAIA is an ISI-journal, listed in the Science Citation Index Expanded, Social Science Citation Index and in Current Contents/Social and Behavioral Sciences.

    All contributions undergo a double-blind peer review.
