creating values – minimising risks – shaping sustainability

Our field of work covers the entire geosphere. We develop, use and protect natural resources. In this way we serve both mankind and our environment.

We provide our geoscientific consulting and research services for you at home and abroad. The centre of our activities is Jena in Thuringia. This is where JENA-GEOS® has been based since the social upheaval in Eastern Germany – this is also where our predecessor institutions operated, whose work we continue with almost 100 years of tradition. From exploring lignite deposits to helping to clean up the legacy pollution that has arisen there, today we are shaping the next structural change with the efficient use of renewable resources. Sustainability is our business model.
