Instruments and consulting

We integrate our work experience into individual local consulting with a number of higher-level activities promoting local climate protection, such as: carbon monitoring, climate protection benchmarking, and the development of support schemes for the implementation of climate protection measures. Moreover, ifeu develops educational materials, such as guidelines and brochures, as well as professional development programmes. The target audience is consumers, suppliers, municipalities, federal states and the Federal Government.
