Commitment

I hereby commit myself with immediate effect to refrain from taking short-haul flights up to 1,000 km (equivalent to about 12 hours train journey) for the purposes of business-related travel.

Moreover, in order to make business travel more climate-friendly overall, I call on the federal government of my country to adapt the pertinent legislation (e.g. the Federal Travel Expenses Act) so that greenhouse gas emissions are taken into account in the selection of the means of transportation for business-related travel. Financial compensation for CO2-emissions caused by long-haul flights should be eligible for reimbursement.

I call upon my scientific institution to support me in climate-friendly travel for business trips by providing the appropriate means and internal regulations.

All persons who serve at scientific institutions in Germany, Austria, or Switzerland are encouraged to sign, if they engage in travel within their country or abroad as part of their work.

Careful! Please disable auto fillin. We do not need zip codes etc. Thanks!
