The UvA has 40,000 students and almost 10,000 staff members who study and work on one of its campuses every day. Through, among other things, energy consumption, sandwiches for lunch, use of ICT facilities and attendance at international conferences, we collectively have a significant impact on the environment. It is important to us that our operational management is in line with our knowledge of Earth’s ecological capacity. We therefore aim to reduce our environmental impact in the coming years.

The structure of the UvA’s environmental impact is shown in a clear infographic.

The topics on this page show our objectives and envisaged measures for the period 2021-2026, and what we are going to do to achieve these. The objectives discussed on these pages are set out in the ‘Sustainability Objectives for Operational Management’ appendix to the White Paper on Sustainability.
