History & philosophy

Long before Going-Green was a buzzword

dfge historyDFGE – Institute for energy, ecology and economy – was founded in 1999 as as spin-off of the Technical University Munich (TUM) and provides support regarding ecological sustainability, energy efficiency; international norms and climate protection.

DFGE offers consulting, software and auditing services to companies in order to enable them to realize a green vision and integrate it into their daily business. Our core competency concerns the question whether and how a fruitful combination of ecological and economical concerns is achievable.

Parts of our portfolio are solutions for CO2 management (greenhouse gas balances), corporate carbon footprint calculations and product carbon footprints / LCAs, as well as support during the participation in international rankings and reporting schemes like UN Global Compact, Global Reporting Initiative (GRI), EcoVadis and Carbon Disclosure Project (CDP).

The target of our solutions is to offer a sustainability intelligence platform to companies, made of accurate calculations, transparent reporting and integration into existing environmental systems, which not only helps to manage information about greenhouse gas emissions and other values but also to reduce them.

Increasingly, DFGE supports customers integrally during their implementation of Corporate Social Responsibility.

“Linking ecology and economy is one of the most important targets of our times. Many ecological approaches lack economical practicability. And with the economically cheapest solutions, ecological aspects are often neglected. We examine if and under which conditions this link between these sometimes contrary targets can be achieved – for new products as well as for already realized use cases. DFGE here focuses on facts and proposals for their interpretation. Opinions and political assessments are part of the clients’ tasks.”
