Progressing sustainability via continuous pursuit of environmental excellence

The University of Auckland has come a long way since the early 1980s when we first started monitoring and managing energy and water. While our efforts since then have saved over 18 billion litres of water and 712 million kWh of energy, with an accumulated value of over NZ$130 million, we’ve also recognised that sustainability is about so much more. And so we continue on this journey to a sustainable future.

Top 3 learnings:

  • Find out what your people care about and design a program that resonates with them.
  • Recognise and build on successes.
  • Choose, design and implement new activities strategically so that they have the most potential to act as catalysts for change.
