What is UDSRotterdam already doing in the field of sustainability?

Of course, sustainability is an important value for UDSRotterdam in the choices we make from the collective point of view. Whether it is the organisation of an event or the purchase of products or services. Sustainability is always decisive. This means, for example, that we prefer local suppliers and products that can be reused and generate as little CO2 emissions as possible.

At WEAR they work sustainably by giving new life to old sneakers.
