The Sustainability Factory is the 'Green Office' of Tilburg University. It is a creative, innovative place where ideas are concretized into projects that make the University more and more sustainable, in a close collaboration between students and staff.
This may involve making our campus more sustainable, organizing an event, but also, for example, setting up a sustainability project in the context of education. The Sustainability Factory is an important initiative to help implement the TiU sustainability plan 'Towards a Sustainable University' that was adopted by the University Council in July 2019.
