We study the aims, conditions and possibilities of a sustainable economy: How can and how should economic systems be devised, so that they are economically efficient in the long run, intra- and intergenerationally just, and in accordance with the conditions and intrinsic values of nature. 

Building upon the methodologically sound inter- and transdisciplinary integration of concepts and methods from economics, the natural sciences, and philosophy, we carry out conceptual, theoretical and empirical research, provide method- and problem-oriented higher education and foster knowledge transfer.
