This ethos underpins Griffith’s commitment to a robust, equitable and environmentally sustainable society.
For 4 decades we have worked to embed sustainable practices into all that we do. As a forerunner in the field, in 1975 Griffith launched Australia’s first environmental science degree and since then, has continued to lead in areas of environmental science, education, research and practices.
'To be a sustainable university' is one of five key goals in Griffith University's Strategic Plan 2013-2017.
Griffith's Sustainability Plan 2013-2015, approved on 5 December 2012, provides goals, objectives, targets and accountabilities to continue to advance our sustainability commitment.
Griffith is also committed to responsible investments. View further details.
Griffith University’s sustainability commitment and achievements were recognised by the 2013 Green Gown Awards Australasia.
