Compensation CO2 emissions
Utrecht University compensates all CO2 emissions caused by business air travel by UU employees. In collaboration with the Climate Neutral Group, Utrecht University contributes to ‘solar cookers’ in Chad and hydropower projects in India.
The Climate Neutral Group's climate projects actually reduce CO2 emissions in the atmosphere and meet the strictest standard for CO2 reduction projects (Gold Standard). In addition, the projects contribute to the living conditions of the local population: employment, knowledge transfer, stimulation of the local economy, improvement of health and the local surroundings.
