WBGU Gutachten: Unsere gemeinsame digitale Zukunft

Die Digitalisierung geht mit immer weiter steigenden Energie- und Ressourcenverbräuchen sowie globalen Produktions- und Konsummustern einher, die die Ökosysteme noch massiver belasten. Die technischen Innovationsschübe übersetzen sich nicht automatisch in Nachhaltigkeitstransformationen, sondern müssen eng mit Nachhaltigkeitsleitbildern und -politiken gekoppelt werden.

Decarbonisation of transport: options and challenges

This EASAC report reviews options for reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from European transport. It argues for stronger policies to bridge the gap between the GHG emission reductions that will be delivered by current policies and the levels needed to limit global warming to less than 2°C or even 1.5°C (Paris Agreement).

Stellungnahme der Akademien Schweiz zur Agrarpolitik 22+

Die Akademien erachten eine deutliche Optimierung der Agrarpolitik als sehr wichtig, um die unerwünschten Auswirkungen auf Umwelt und Natur zu minimieren, die Produktionsgrundlagen der Landwirtschaft zu erhalten, die Wirtschaftlichkeit des Sektors zu steigern und grundsätzlich dessen Nachhaltigkeit zu verbessern. Verschiedene Vorschläge schlagen eine geeignete Optimierungsrichtung ein, reichen aber nicht aus, um tatsächliche Verbesserungen und die formulierte Vision zu erreichen sowie den Verfassungsauftrag zu erfüllen. Viele der Vorschläge sind kaum einschätzbar, da ihre Wirkung von der Ausgestaltung der Instrumente abhängt und der Umgang mit Zielkonflikten nicht geklärt ist.

Academia aims to reduce its own CO₂ emissions

Researchers fly all over the world to take part in conferences and exchange ideas face-to-face. And they often do so without thinking about the impact on our climate. But if the oncologist Daniel Helbling has his way, that will soon change. We look at three initiatives from scientists who are keen to improve the sustainability of their own disciplines.

19th Swiss Global Change Day – Meeting Report and Conference Documents

On 19 April 2018, the Swiss global change science community met for the 19th time on the annual Swiss Global Change Day. About 210 participants attended the event and 60 posters were exhibited. Distinguished researchers presented scientific highlights and the program provided enough time for discussions and networking. At the event ProClim also celebrated its 30th Anniversary with the central theme of a growing tree. This theme appeared in a number of ways, such as in form of the birthday cake, seeds as a giveaway or a real apple tree on stage, which was planted by ProClim after the event.

Environmental Impacts of Swiss Consumption and Production

There is a need for information on total environmental impacts of Swiss consumption and production as a complement to economic information. The study published by FOEN 2011 investigated for the first time the total environmental impacts due to Swiss consumption and production. About 60% of environmental impacts that are caused by final demand occur abroad as a result of imported goods and services. The most important area of consumption is nutrition that accounts for about 30% of total impacts, followed by housing and mobility of private households.
