Utrecht University: CO2 neutral by 2030.
Sustainability and Utrecht University

Utrecht University is working hard on a sustainable world within and outside the university. That is why it will be CO2 neutral by 2030.

The development of a sustainable society is one of the biggest challenges of the 21st century. The current generation is the first to deal with the consequences of climate change and the last that can solve this problem.

Utrecht University takes its social responsibility to make an active contribution to this. By developing and sharing scientific knowledge on the one hand, and by being an inspiring example on the other hand.
