Embedding the Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) provide a framework for ensuring a more sustainable future for people and the planet across society, the economy, and the natural world. These set the agenda for sustainable development to 2030.

The University is committed to working towards all 17 SDGs, embedding them across our curriculum, our campus, and within the wider community. We strive to integrate the SDGs in all we do including our teaching, operations, and behaviors.

We have put together a table summarizing our progress against the targets we set for the academic year 2021/22. The table can be found here: SDG Report TABLE , we have highlighted the relevant SDGs for each area, demonstrating how our sustainability activities are contributing to advancing these. The relevant SDGs were also highlighted against our activities for the previous year in our annual environmental sustainability report which can be foundĀ  here .

In line with our commitment to embed the SDGs, we participate in the Times Higher Education (THE) Global Impact Rankings which scores higher education institutions on their work towards each goal. Although institutions are only required to submit evidence against SDG17 and three others to produce their overall score and ranking, we submitted for all SDGs, reaffirming our commitment towards, and ambition to improve in all aspects of sustainability and global action.

In 2022, we saw our global impact score improve, achieving top 50 rankings in 7 of the 17 categories.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are a set of 17 global goals established by the United Nations in 2015 as part of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
