Sustainability as a Guiding Principle

Vice Rectorate for Sustainability

Professor Dr. Annette Scheersoi is the Vice Rector for Sustainability. In line with our distinguished status as University of Excellence, sustainability is an issue of uniquely central importance to the University of Bonn. For we are called upon to empower future generations to exercise greater responsibility in shaping society, preserving the environment and conserving resources.


Sustainability concerns all of us. I am very pleased that a dedicated Vice Rectorate has been formed for this area, highlighting its particular importance to our University. Sustainability is thus to be an integral part of our research, teaching and operations. As Vice Rector, I am looking forward to working together with all of you to promote sustainability at our University.
