Sustainable student organization

Do you want to make your organisation or association more sustainable? The Green Office can help you! Specifically for student organisations the 'Sustainability Subsidies' are awarded and the 'Green Labels' can be achieved. In addition, a general information document is available with concrete examples that you could use as inspiration for becoming more sustainable.

Sustainability Subsidy

The sustainability subsidy is awarded to associations that have a tangible idea to make the organisation more sustainable and need financial aid to do so. Currently, the grant can only be applied for by organisations 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.

The annual plan for 2022-2023 is scheduled as depicted below. The schedule differs in subsequent years. The applications between label and subsidy are not directly connected, the association can decide to apply for a subsidy, a label or both.
