Sustainability at the University of Auckland
The University of Auckland is committed to building on its achievements in the efficient management of energy, water and key material resources, the minimisation of waste and emissions, and commits to continue to find new and innovative ways to advance sustainability.
New Zealand’s second national Sustainable Development Goals Summit is a joint initiative between the University of Auckland and Auckland University of Technology designed to bring together people from all sectors to develop and commit to positive action on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Hosting the summit on our city campus is a great opportunity for staff and students wanting to help accelerate action on New Zealand’s cross-sector contributions to the global goals that will set the UN agenda to 2030.
WCMB 2020 has identified four university principles to follow to ensure the conference minimises adverse impacts on the environment:
- To minimise the energy, water and material resources used
- To promote the use of sustainable modes of transport
- To utilise current systems for recovery and disposal correctly
- To prevent waste at source
We thank you for supporting us with this vision.
