Tilburg Sustainability Center

Sustainability Factory

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.

    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. We were quite happy with this moment!
