As a member of the Leibniz Association, we feel committed to scientific excellence and social relevance. Research and transfer to society are therefore two sides of the same coin.

Sustainable development not only guides our research interests. As an employer, ZALF also wants to integrate more responsibility for the environment and society into the daily lives of its employees. Our own environmental policy sets the framework for this.
