Sustainable business operations
As a leading knowledge and education institution with a social responsibility, Fontys wants to respond actively to developments in the area of sustainability. We aim to set an example for our neighbourhood. That is why we educate present and future generations to make a proactive contribution to a sustainable society. We prepare students for the world of tomorrow so that they are able to help in finding solutions to social issues. We do this in close co-operation with the professional field
and by making the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) an integral part of our education and research. And in our daily activities, or business operations. We aim for our business operations to be CO2 neutral (in 2030), to have buildings with energy label A only (in 2023), to generate our own energy and to be 75% gas-free in 2030. But we also focus on healthy buildings and circular purchasing.
