We are engaged in climate change mitigation on local level

The Climate Neighbourhoods are organised in cooperation with ifeu – Institute for Energy and Enviromental Research Heidelberg and the European city network Climate Alliance. Both organisations are active in various projects in the field of municipal climate action. The CN are supported by the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.


Ifeu conducts research and provides a worldwide consultancy service in relation to all major environmental and sustainability issues. With more than 40 years of experience, ifeu is one of the most important ecological research institutes in Germany. Our work is characterised by experience and independence combined with a practical and target-based approach. ifeu currently employs 80 staff with a background in natural sciences, engineering and social sciences at its sites in Heidelberg and Berlin.
