Towards a Sustainable University
Tilburg University is committed to a sustainable society and encourages researchers, teachers, support staff, students, and stakeholders to actively contribute.
Our activities, initiatives and results
Sustainability in Education
Our education makes students aware of sustainability issues and encourages them to think about their current role and their role as future professionals and leaders in society.
Sustainability in Research
In our research, we aim to better understand international, regional and local sustainability problems and develop knowledge to arrive at solutions.
Sustainability on Campus
On our campus and in our asset management, we strive to limit our negative impact on the environment, and - better yet - actively contribute to solutions. Sustainability is not a well-defined, stand-alone ambition, but runs like a thread through our strategy.
