Environment and Energy


As a result of a continuously emerging climate change and the shortage of fossil fuels, the subject of environment and renewable energies are increasingly gaining importance. As the most important aspect of a sustainable energy policy, the transition to renewable energies is interesting for both suppliers and consumers.

In order to reach goals of climate protection, it is important to sensitize companies as well as private individuals for the subject matter of environment and climate protection. By means of energy and resource efficiency projects, innovations of renewable energies can be established in private households and companies. The Institute has conducted many studies in this area, for instance „Mehr Klimaschutz durch Beteiligung“, which was commissioned by the “Technologieberatungsstelle” at DGB NRW (TBS NRW). The increase of energy and resource efficiency and the application of renewable energies in companies entail that the need for resources and energy, as well as the amount of waste can be reduced and consequently contribute to an environmentally friendly production.

Besides corporate surveys, SOKO Institute conducts telephone business surveys or personal population surveys with the Random-Route-Procedure, which are, for example, commissioned by the Institute for Ecological Economy Research (IOEW), the “Technologieberatungsstelle” at DGB NRW (TBS NRW) or the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety (BMUB).
