At the event, IIASA researcher Johannes Pirker will discuss how consumption of everyday products has global environmental consequences. He will highlight the omnipresence of palm oil in commonly used products and how this impacts producer countries in terms of forest conversion to palm plantations and contribution to climate change.

During the event, this year’s climate award will be given to the Kindergarten Hofstrasse and recent analysis of environmentally friendly mobility options for Laxenburg will be presented.
