Maastricht University Sustainability Policy 2012-2014
The Sustainability Policy 2012-14 aims to link future ambitions to past efforts and current commitments. The new policy broadens and deepens the past ambitions in the field of sustainability as outlined in the previous sustainability policy 2008-2010. Moreover, it aims to strengthen the link between the university and the municipality of Maastricht, by recognizing the university?s pivotal role in assisting Maastricht municipality to reach its goal to become climate neutral in 2030.
Additionally, the policy integrates current commitments of Maastricht University – the Multiple Year Agreement on Energy Efficiency (MJA3) and the Dutch public sustainable procurement scheme (Agentschap NL) – and builds on the recommendations of the Climate Action Report – the first baseline analysis of sustainable development at Maastricht University. Maastricht University Green Office designed and developed this policy in close cooperation with all relevant stakeholders.
