Her current projects include Bottom-Up Climate Adaptation Strategies for a Sustainable Europe (BASE), Economics of Climate Change Adaptation in Europe (ECONADAPT) and Economics of climate change: costs and benefits of adaptation measures for climate change. Additionally, she has developed indicators for the assessment of climate protection and adaptation, and has identified best practice examples of adaptation measures and strategies, for example in the Project Analysis of Adaptation Projects. Furthermore, Jenny Tröltzsch has been involved in several projects regarding the intersection of water management and climate adaptation, as in the projects Climate change - water scenarios, impacts & adaptation measures (ClimWatAdapt) and Benefits of governance in drought adaptation (DROP).
Jenny Tröltzsch has been engaged in environmental research since 2003. Before she started working at Ecologic Institute, Jenny Tröltzsch worked from 2005 to 2010 as a research assistant at the University of Hagen (Germany) in their master's programme in interdisciplinary environmental sciences (infernum).

In addition to her work at Ecologic Institute, Jenny Tröltzsch is currently writing her doctoral thesis on the integration of climate protection into strategic management processes in the airline industry. She studied management and technology at the Technical University of Dresden (TU Dresden, Germany) and at Lappeenranta University of Technology in Finland, specializing in environmental and water management. For her thesis, Jenny carried out an empirical study on the implementation of the EU-ETS in the German chemical industry. Parallel to her studies, Jenny Tröltzsch was for several years the head of TU-Umweltinitiative, an environmental student organization at the TU Dresden.
