A sustainable environment
Wageningen Campus inspires innovators to work on a sustainable future by providing a highly sustainable work-environment, which is already 80% climate neutral. For example, buildings are constructed and maintained according to high sustainability targets. Most buildings on campus are heated and cooled with Aquifer Thermal Energy Storage that stores heat and cold between seasons. Waste is separated in up to fifteen different flows and organic waste is used again as compost on the campus itself. The campus actually generates more renewable energy than it uses.
All organizations on the campus consider sustainability to be of paramount importance.
