The COPERNICUS Charter, signed by the University of Groningen in 1993, consists of a number of guidelines that universities can follow to integrate sustainable development into all parts of their institution.

The COPERNICUS Charter is the result of a number of environmental conferences and an initiative of the Association of European Universities. The abbreviation stands for ‘CoOperation Programme in Europe for Research on Nature and Industry through Coordinated University Studies’. By 2006, over 320 European universities, including all Dutch ones, had signed the charter.
