Conscious consumption


For the sake of consistency, UCLouvain incorporates social and environmental criteria in its consumption choices. Its leitmotifs: consume less, consume better, throw away better. To move towards more sustainability, the University is gradually breaking free from non-eco-responsible sectors, subscribing to the principles of the circular economy, developing responsible digital behaviour, and moving towards zero waste. These are all steps that require a deep awareness-raising across the entire University community in order to create a new social standard for consumption.
