The first sustainability report for SDU has been published
With this first sustainability report for SDU, we provide a brief status of the work in 2019-2020.
In June 2021, two years have gone since SDU’s board decided to make the UN’s 17 SDG for a sustainable development an important focal point for the university’s continued development. With this first sustainability report for SDU, we provide a brief status of the work in 2019-2020.
As appears from the report, thanks to the great efforts of staff and students across SDU a wide range of activities has been initiated that make sustainability a central part of the university’s research, education, innovation, external cooperation and operation.
At the same time there is hardly any doubt that we as a united humanity are still facing very large challenges in relation to e.g. climate, environment, poverty, health, inequality, if we shall achieve the goals behind the 2030 agenda.
The challenges can only be solved through common efforts across organisations, sectors and frontiers. SDU is conscious of its role and responsibility in relation to contributing knowledge, cooperation and technology for the work on creating a more sustainable development for our common earth and future generations.
As stated in the report, significant developments have taken place at the university since June 2019, but we still have a lot to do – both in relation to the university’s own sustainable transformation and its work with the SDGs.
SDU’s sustainability report will be followed up in June by the university’s first climate account.
