Sustainability at the Faculty of Science
The Faculty of Science conducts many projects and initiatives in the area of sustainability. Researchers explore sustainable applications and lecturers develop new degree programmes. Sustainability is also a key criterion for facilities services.
The UvA is also working to improve its sustainability. Amongst other initiatives, solar panels were installed on the roofs of Science Park 904 and other buildings in 2016, which also saw the launch of the UvA Green Office.
