After 2019

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.
