Plans for 2019 Sustainability in education & researchUtrecht University is committed to ensuring that all students come into contact with sustainability issues, regardless of their field of study. Connecting education, research and business operationsThe University wants to maximise the use of its own knowledge when making its business operations more sustainable. Future-proof buildingsAt the beginning of 2019, the University presented its vision on ‘future-proof buildings’, which included a new approach to new builds and renovation. Energy and emissionsIn order to become a carbon-neutral university by 2030, huge efforts will be required in 2019 and the years thereafter to generate all the energy sustainably. Green campusA key component of a green campus is not only the amount of green space, but also its ecological value. MobilityThe University is working on reducing car use on campus and encouraging sustainable travel. CateringIn 2019, Utrecht University will stop selling single-use plastic water bottles.
