Sustainable University

Green metric ranking: University of Groningen is the most sustainable university in the Netherlands

This position is no coincidence: the University of Groningen has been focusing on sustainability for a long time, also at policy level. Energy and sustainability is a focus point in our teaching and research, as well as in our business operations and in the construction of new buildings; waste is separated into 28 different streams and collected in electrical vans, and technologies such as concrete core activation are used in new construction work. In addition, the University of Groningen also encourages its students and staff to think about sustainability via the Green Mind Award.
