TU/e maintains first place as most sustainable university of the Netherlands!

The GO Green Office helped this year again with filling out the forms for the sustainaBUL ranking of ‘Studenten voor Morgen’. This is done in colaboration with the internal affairs department.

The SustainaBUL ranking has 4 different topics namely:

▪  Education    ▪  Business management

▪  Research      ▪  Integral approach___

A questionnaire was send to each participant with questions related to these topics, for each subject a total of 100 points could be awarded. All answers had to be supported with clear and correct evidence, otherwise no points were awarded.

This year the sustainaBUL was won by the TU/e for the second year in a row!

The jury found the best practice of Team SOLID so impressive, that Eindhoven University of Technology could again take the first price home.
