  • Incorporate practical sustainability measures in the design of new buildings and infrastructure
  • Deliver infrastructure to promote sustainable active transport and promoting policies to encourage public transport
  • Enhance campus biodiversity
  • Engage the University community on sustainability issues to influence better environmental behaviour
  • Network and collaborate with other leading universities to advance sustainability in the tertiary education sector
