Mission Statement

By 2030, UL will only provide sustainable forms of transport within and between campuses, with a focus on physical mobility where possible.
The means of transport available within communities has a direct impact on their health, resilience and ecological footprint. This mission sees UL ensure all mobility infrastructure and services available on campus grounds are sustainable and encourage active mobility. In doing so, individuals will have guaranteed access to sustainable forms of transport and active travel when moving on and between campus grounds.

Sustainable Development Goals

Each mission and associated project within the Mission Lab portfolio is directly linked to one or more SDGs, ensuring all efforts are in service of true impact.
