Sustainability at the UG

Sustainability is one of the key values of the University of Groningen. This means that the UG aims to integrate sustainable development into all facets of the University. Not only in teaching and research, but also in University business operations. Sustainability therefore has an important place in the Strategic Plan. All ambitions and objectives in the field of sustainability up to 2026 can be found in the Roadmap Sustainability.

The Roadmap Sustainability was created by the Sustainability Programme and the Green Office, in collaboration with staff members, academics, students, service units and faculties.
