In the coming years, Utrecht University will be pursuing the following ambitions:
- In order to meet the global climate targets, Utrecht University has set itself the ambition of becoming a carbon-neutral organisation by 2030.
To achieve this within 11 years, the University will be installing more solar panels and all buildings will be connected to thermal storage or geothermal energy.
The University will also be reducing its own energy consumption, both in building management and use and by encouraging sustainable travel behaviour.
The University is also investing heavily in future-proof renovations for its real estate stock.
