The sustainable university
In this dossier you can read about Leiden University’s commitment to sustainability.
Sustainability is one of the five ongoing themes of Leiden University’s Strategic Plan 2022-2027: Innovating and Connecting. Sustainability is high on the agenda, therefore. Leiden University is aware of its role in society and wants to create a green, healthy and inclusive campus with a positive impact in the area of climate and circularity. With the knowledge that emerges from its research and teaching, the University wants to play a leading role in the transition to a sustainable future and contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals. In its operations, the University is taking responsibility by aligning with the goals from the Paris Agreement for 2030 and 2050 and by making a firm commitment to reducing the organisation’s environmental impact.
