Maastricht University aims for a sustainable world through its research and education and leading by example in its operations. Its aim is to integrate sustainability in the DNA of the entire organisation by 2030.

UM believes a sustainable world can be achieved by using research to accelerate innovation, by focusing on education to share knowledge and change mindsets, and by leading by example. UM aims to contribute to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s) and making a true impact by university wide multi- and interdisciplinary expertise.

To reach that aim UM has created the Taskforce Sustainable UM2030 that will work on sustainability issues. The Taskforce consists of researchers, teachers, faculty liaisons and UM policy makers and works with students via the UM Green Office.
