The Alliance of Sustainable Universities in Austria, currently presided over by Univ.-Prof. Dr. Martin Gerzabek, Rector of the University of Natural Resources and Life Sciences, sees itself as an informal, open network aiming to more strongly promote the issue of sustainability at universities, thereby contributing to the sustainability of society. According to Faulhammer, „Danube University Krems pledges itself to sustainability because of its responsibility as a public university towards society.“ This membership, adds Faulhammer, is another step towards promoting Danube University Krems‘ programs of research and study.
