Learning outcomes:
After successfully completing this module, students will be able to assess the concerns of corporate environmental protection/environmental management, as well as regional material flow management based on the example of municipalities. We will discuss interfaces and connections between relevant environmental areas, e.g. immission control, water/waste management, soil protection, energy management, etc. In the context of regional considerations, special emphasis will be placed on the field of renewable energies.
