About us Profile Facts and figures Sustainability Policy


Sustainability is one of the University of Groningen's main focus areas. Sustainable building management requires not only sustainable development, construction and use, but also sustainable demolition at the end of a building’s lifespan.

Sustainable materials, future-proof concepts and flexible layouts are the mainstay of all new building and renovation work. In the long term, sustainable building will reduce overall running costs. The University of Groningen is careful to incorporate the latest findings on safe and responsible building in earthquake areas (such as Groningen) into its designs for new buildings and large-scale renovation projects.

On the Groundbreaking Work website you can find an overview of all information on building projects and sustainable solutions.
