The 17 Sustainable Development Goals, adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in 2015, have been critical in sparking academic discourse as well as broader discussions about the societal role of universities. Our conviction demands that we engage in both. Sustainable development aims at fostering integration and networking. This shared mission can only be achieved by engaging and bringing together many individuals from all areas of the University.  

This report makes clear that sustainable development, Climate Emergency, and carbon neutrality remains a strategic task at our University. 

This Sustainability Report 2018-19 details the focus of our activities and shows the progressive evolution of our commitment to sustainable campus management over the past 12 years since the Board of Governors adopted our sustainability policy.  

Top 3 learnings:

  1. Include students, staff, governors, and the local community in developing your vision. 
  2. We cannot do this on our own. Little by way of innovation occurs in isolation and the University of Worcester is open to collaboration and collaborative models. 
  3. When sustainability is interwoven and inspirational, more people can feel motivated to balance economic efficiency, social equity, and environmental accountability.
