Sustainability Programma

Since 2015, UU has had a sustainability programme. An important step in 2022 is the approval of the founding document for the Sustainability Office. With the arrival of the Sustainability Office in 2023, the university aims to strengthen the governance structure around sustainability and show that sustainability is prioritised.

The Sustainability Office will operate from three teams: team strategy, monitoring and programmes, the Green Office and UULabs. The Green Office forms the sustainability platform for and by staff and students. Living labs for sustainable development are initiated from UULabs. Here, research, education and operations work together on solutions to local sustainability issues.
