The aim of the network, founded in 1998, is to promote innovative environmental technologies and the cross-linking of Bavarian competencies. For this purpose, around 200 members from the economy, municipalities, chambers, research and education institutes work together in a trusting relationship.
Important aspects of the work performed by KUMAS include knowledge transfer, exchange of experiences, brokering of information and contacts as well as dynamic cooperation. The broad range of services offered by KUMAS contributes to increasing environmental competency and to improving the general framework for the Bavarian environmental management.
Conferences established by KUMAS are a great asset to the environmental sector. The Bavarian waste and landfill days, Bavarian emission control days and Bavarian water days are well-known beyond Bavarian borders. For many years, KUMAS has been represented at collective member stands at the RENEXPO® energy trade fair for Bavaria and the international environment fair IFAT. It has its very own environmental award entitled “Offizielles Leitprojekt des KUMAS-Umweltnetzwerks” (official key project of the KUMAS environmental network), which is awarded to innovative projects which contribute to improving environmental standards in Bavaria every year.
