Currently, such searches are mainly done manually by specialised companies, i.e. by humans. He applies this method to analyse, for example, the innovation activity of companies and the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on businesses.

    ZEW survey | Mannheim | Climate protection | CO2 emission
    The tree donation campaign has proved to be particularly beneficial.

    A large number of ZEW survey participants took the opportunity to voluntarily donate part of their expense allowance to the city of Mannheim for urban reforestation initiatives in preparation for the 2023 German National Garden Show (BUGA). A total of 2,809.40 euros was passed on to the “Bundesgartenschau Mannheim 2023 gGmbH”. The money was used to plant four Caucasian wingnuts in the eastern part of the newly emerging Käfertal park bowl in May 2021. Looking at the survey results, it can be seen that the willingness of participants to donate trees is significantly greater than the willingness to voluntarily offset CO2 by retiring certificates from emissions trading.
