The University of Edinburgh has a clear commitment to sustainability which is underpinned by our vision to make the world a better place.

Social and Civic Responsibility is a core pillar of our 2030 Strategy which seeks to deliver positive change locally, regionally and globally. Aligned with the United Nation’s Sustainable Development goals, we are committed to:

  • becoming a zero carbon and zero waste University;
  • widening participation in higher education and supporting inclusion; and
  • working together with local communities to improve the lives of people across the Edinburgh City Region

  • Develop and deliver appropriate education to staff, clients & delegates
  • Take a leadership role in sustainability
  • Contribute to stable community building
  • Maintain and develop Conference & Events in a sustainable manner
  • Monitor and report on progress towards sustainability
