University of St Andrews launches Annual Sustainability Report

The University has launched its Annual Sustainability Report for the year 2022-2023, which aligns with all 17 of the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). This framework demonstrates the institution’s dedication to a comprehensive and deliberate approach to sustainability across research, teaching, and operations. The Introduction to the report by Professor Dame Sally Mapstone FRSE, Principal and Vice-Chancellor explains:

“The UN SDGs offer an inclusive roadmap for sustainability, addressing a wide range of interconnected challenges, from poverty and inequality to climate change and environmental degradation. This collaborative approach fosters inclusive decision-making, promotes knowledge-sharing, and leverages diverse perspectives and expertise to drive meaningful change”.

The report presents case studies that highlight the University’s broad institutional commitment to sustainability. From award-winning teaching to innovative renewable energy initiatives like those at Eden Campus, from nationally funded research projects to globally recognised curriculum development efforts.
