Sustainability Factory

Sustainability Factory

The Sustainability Factory is the ‘Green Office’ of Tilburg University. The Sustainability Factory is made up by a small dedicated student team, who work together with university staff to inform, inspire and engage with students, staff and the local community. We are currently working to build a community of like minded individuals who want to come together around the topic of sustainability, and match ideas, projects and initiatives. The student team carries out some projects themselves and work to support other motivated individuals in bringing their ideas to life.

Launch of the Sustainability Factory

On February 3rd 2020, President of the Executive Board Koen Becking signed the Sustainable Development Goal pledge, whereby Tilburg University joined the institutions that commit to the SDGs in their policies. At the same time he launched the Sustainability Factory.

The impact of an (extra) meatless day is immense. And the alternatives can surely be just as delicious.
