The TU/e Campus, which even now is a green and sustainable campus with a park-like look, is well underway to becoming even more sustainable. Sustainability is visible in our education, our research and on our campus. In 2015 TU/e was climate neutral, and the aim is to be fifty percent energy neutral in 2030. This means that in that year half of our energy will be generated by TU/e itself.
