We take responsibility.

Tomorrow’s digital heroes are shaping our future. For us at XU Exponential University, helping to shape and decide also means providing sustainable answers to the greatest challenges of our time. What does this mean in action? It is quite simple. It is about our social and ecological responsibility.

Together with you, we are taking a firm stance and making a difference. Our first contribution: XU Exponential University is going climate neutral.

Why are we doing this?

Without any ifs and buts:
Climate protection is a responsibility for all of us!

Climate Neutral

In times of digitization, it is important for us to think about offline as well.

How does a climate-neutral university work?

To put it short: avoid, reduce and offset emissions. All this together with you!

Who is supporting us?

ClimatePartner from Munich is also on board.

What has geothermal energy in West Java got to do with it?

Taking responsibility requires action! And that is what we do by supporting a geothermal project in West Java, Indonesia.

Climate Neutral XU Exponential University: How it Works

Reduce the university’s CO2 footprint

Together with the ClimatePartner team, we have gathered all CO2 emissions that our university operations are causing. These emissions occur due to the consumption of electricity or heating, for example. However, it also includes the journeys to the campus made by students or the university team.

There is so much more to it, you say? We think so too.

Taking responsibility together

We use eco-electricity at XU Exponential University. By offering you additional virtual study courses, we are able to further reduce our CO2 footprint.

But we are still far from reaching our targets. That is why we are counting on you and your ideas to help us achieve more for climate protection together. Your ideas count! Share them with us.

That is why we take responsibility and reduce our CO2 footprint by supporting a certified climate protection project from the ClimatePartner profile.

Our climate protection project: Geothermal energy in West Java

Geothermal steam from natural resources generates clean electricity. This is what our project is all about. In West Java, an average of 750,000 tons of CO2 emissions are saved every year, which would have inevitably been caused by the use of fossil fuels. The team behind the project has been awarded several times for their groundbreaking environmental and safety management in Indonesia.

In addition, the team supports the local economy and expands the community’s infrastructure. For example, by providing the people in the region with access to clean drinking water and securing the supply. The committed team has expanded the educational system with the construction of a new primary school, the creation up a language laboratory and a scholarship program for local students.
