Climate Friendly Materials Platform

Since the end of 2016 the Climate Friendly Materials Platform - jointly lead by DIW Berlin and Climate Strategies - brings together policy makers, industry representatives, practitioners in industrial decarbonisation and applied researchers for the development of a shared understanding of tangible policy options and eventually common policy action at the national and EU level to the overall goal of successfully decarbonize the basic materials sector.

Round-table workshops take place at DIW Berlin or at various international institutions to which Platform's research members are affiliated depending on specific collaborations, funding sources and focus on specific relevant topics.

Sustainable Finance

Financing issues and the interplay of financial market and climate and energy regulation are of key importance for the success of a transformation towards a climate-neutral and sustainable economy. The science platform Sustainable Finance aims to scientifically support the answer to key social, political and private issues by building on a strong cooperation network of five German research institutions. It will provide established and emerging research knowledge, introduce other relevant science actors to the political-public discourse, and identify important gaps in knowledge and knowledge and strategies and proposals for addressing these gaps.
