Vision

Mission

The GO Green Office aims to create awareness about the importance of sustainability, stimulate to take action via promotion and executing projects, and provide the support needed to empower the action.

TU/e Festival Cups

To stop the “sea of plastic” which can be found on the floor after a regular outdoor party, GO Green Office introduces reusable festival cups. Every TU/e related festival, event or activity can borrow these for FREE! Are you organizing an event yourselves? Then become a certified sustainable event!
