SUSTAINABILITY IN THE STUDENT UNION
The topic sustainability plays an important role in the student union Aachen. Environmentally-conscious behaviour and the economical use of raw materials and energy come into play in many areas, for example in the use of regional and seasonal products in the catering area or resource-saving and energy-efficient construction methods in new building projects.
