    Goals / Remit

    The non-profit legal entity Agora Think Tanks gGmbH consists of Agora Energiewende, Agora Industrie and, since April 2022, Agora Agrar. As such, Agora Think Tanks gGmbH develops scientifically sound and politically feasible ways to achieve climate neutrality in Germany, Europe and globally. As a group of think tanks and policy labs, we share knowledge with stakeholders from politics, business, science and civil society and at the same time strive for a productive exchange of ideas. Our scientifically sound research identifies practical political solutions without taking an ideological stance. As a non-profit company financed by grants from foundations and public institutions, we are committed neither to corporate nor political interests, but exclusively to climate protection.
