Our ongoing commitment to the environment and sustainability is making a difference
Sustainability is a core value of Griffith University and a key initiative of the 2020 – 2025 Strategic Plan – Creating a Future for All.
Griffith University is a signatory to the United Nations Global Compact and in 2017, signed up to Sustainable Development Solutions Network Australia/Pacific — the Universities' Commitment to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
We are committed to contributing to a robust, equitable and environmentally sustainable society. By 2025, our commitment to and continuous improvement in sustainability will be achieved by:
- embedding the SDGs in University teaching, research, and operations
- being ranked in the top 200 universities in the world for the implementation of the SDGs
- halving carbon emissions by 2030; with the goal of net zero carbon emissions by 2050
Our Sustainability Plan 2017 – 2020 provides a roadmap to progress our commitment and our sustainability goals, policies and plans are overseen by the Sustainability Sub Committee.
