October 7, 2014 /3BL Media/ - UNSW Australia’s first Sustainability Report

This month, UNSW Australia becomes the first university in Australia’s prestigious Group of Eight to publish a stand-alone, publicly available Sustainability Report. The report is based on the Global Reporting Initiative and acknowledges that ‘sustainability’ encompasses not just environmental, but social, cultural and economic dimensions.

UNSW’s 2013 Sustainability Report is a landmark initiative for the higher education sector and a great achievement for the University. The report:

  • identifies the sustainability issues that impact on the environment and society as a result of UNSW business activities
  • describes UNSW’s journey towards sustainability, including past achievements, current initiatives and future aspirations
  • provides a 2013 sustainability snapshot so future improvements can be easily identified.

The report has been published online, in order to reduce printing and subsequent waste. In addition, highlights of the report have been published as a Sustainability Summary which can be viewed here or obtained in hard copy from the office of UNSW Sustainability.

“The sustainability challenges we face on a national and global scale are considerable, but as an education and research institution UNSW Australia has a unique and positive role to play in pioneering sustainability adaptation. We are equipping this country’s future environmental, business and social leaders with the knowledge and skills required to address sustainability issues at their core.”
