Across the TU Delft campus, GreenTU has been facilitating the creation and activities of faculty-specific GreenTeams. Many of these teams have since written an Inventory Report about the state of sustainability at their faculty, as well as their recommendations for action.

TU Delft has four sustainable goals for its campus, namely that it is: carbon-neutral, circular, healthy, and has an eye for biodiversity and ecology. To make this first goal concrete, Andy van den Dobbelsteen (now university sustainability coordinator) and Tess Blom have authored the TU Delft CO2 Roadmap, which includes an extensive overview of the state of affairs and offers measures towards a carbon-neutral campus. In the same vein, the TU Delft CO2 Footprint Report is now a yearly staple. For specific numbers on variables such as electricity, heat, water, and primary energy demand of TU Delft campus buildings, you can explore the Energy Monitor.

Did you know that TU Delft has published its Vision on Climate Action? This document establishes where TU Delft stands on climate action, starting from what climate science says and going over what active research areas are of interest.
