Dr. Michael Wormer

What made you decide to work at ifok? 

Because you get to do things with great colleagues here that contribute to sustainable development in our society, despite the adverse circumstances and current developments.

When did you start at ifok and where were you previously? 

I started here in October 1998. Prior to that, I was working as an independent contractor with the environmental protection authorities and in a working group for urban ecology at the University of Heidelberg. 

What sets you apart at the office?

I love looking for new, innovative approaches, solutions and ways of doing things that make our clients happy – and then successfully putting them into practice. In other words, making an impact.

What do you particularly like doing in your free time? 

I have been a keen photographer since my schooldays. I’m planning to get my old 6×6 film camera and dark room up and running again – years after digital cameras came onto the scene.  

In what way do you put sustainability into practice? 

I am always trying to act (more) sustainably in my everyday life – at least in small ways. I have to admit we’re pretty pleased with the renovation we did in our old childhood home, which now consumes less than a fifth of the amount of heat energy that it used to need. 

Which three things can you not do without on a long train journey? 

A good book, my iPad and – these days, an absolute necessity – my reading glasses.
