The impact of travel & mobility on our CO2 footprint is substantial. Commuting and business travel together contribute around 10.000 tonnes of CO2 per year. This is 31% of the CO2-footprint of the University of Twente. Therefore, mobility is one of the priority areas to focus on for improving the sustainability of our organisation.
The basic principles of sustainable mobility are reducing the CO2 emissions as a result of all forms of travel by employees and students, promote more sustainable modes of travel and alternatives to travel, and compensate emissions of travel that could not be avoided.

The basic principles of sustainable mobility are reducing the CO2 emissions as a result of all forms of travel by employees and students and promote more sustainable modes of travel. The SEE programme has created a Sustainable Mobility plan that describes the current situation, the desired situation and proposes a planning for the period up to 2023.
The University of Twente has taken many measures in the past to promote sustainable mobility. A full list of these measures can be found here.
