    The ZNU – Centre for Sustainable Leadership is an application-oriented research institute in the Faculty of Economics of the University of Witten/Herdecke. As a sustainability initiative between business and science, we are working with the sustainability leaders of today and tomorrow to make tangible improvements in sustainable corporate management through research, teaching, training and conferences.


Target Group

The webinar is aimed at those interested in and responsible for the areas of corporate energy and sustainability management as well as decision-makers who want to make their way to the carbon neutrality of their company.


The goal of the ZNU goes Zero webinar is to gain an insight into the 5-step approach of the climate protection initiative ZNU goes Zero.

First of all, the necessity of acting in the field of climate protection is clarified from the company’s point of view. Furthermore, all 5 steps to climate neutrality with examples for the practical procedure are explained and preferred partners for possible compensation projects are presented. In particular, the subject of carbon footprinting (step 1) will be discussed. In addition to climate protection as the overarching goal of the initiative, the added value that ZNU partners will gain when participating in ZNU goes Zero will be highlighted.
