Sustainable student organization

Do you want to make the organisation of your association more sustainable? The Green Office can help you! Specifically for student organizations the 'Sustainability Subsidy' is awarded and the 'Green Labels' have been created. In addition, a general information document has been created with concrete examples that you can think of if you want to become more sustainable.

Sustainability Subsidy

The sustainability subsidy is awarded to associations that have a concrete idea to make the organisation more sustainable and can use financial aid to do so. Currently, the grant can only be applied for by organizations that are recognized by CUOS by being on the 'Recognized Student Organizations Profile Fund'.


Green Labels

The Green Labels can be obtained by all associations based in Groningen that focus on students. The sustainability of the association is checked on the basis of a checklist that focuses on the RUG's spearheads in the field of sustainability. These include, for example, the reduction and separation of waste, sustainable procurement of goods and catering, raising awareness among members and responsibility for sustainable education/career opportunities.

By distinguishing between different categories, the checklist is accessible to both larger and smaller associations of all types.

Annual planning 2020

The annual plan for 2020 is as follows. This may differ in subsequent years. The applications are not linked and the association can decide to apply for a subsidy, label or both.
