AUT is committed to achieving sustainability and taking action in light of local and global challenges. We continue to nurture a culture of sustainability through learning, teaching, research, partnerships and how we operate our facilities.
AUT’s Sustainability Roadmap outlines sustainability objectives, priority actions and targets across learning, research, governance and facilities.
Launched in October 2018 by the Minister of Climate Change, the road map was developed by the Vice-Chancellor's Taskforce for Sustainability with input from staff and students. It supports AUT’s contribution towards the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
In early 2016 AUT became a member of the UN’s Sustainable Development Solutions Network. The network supports implementation of the SDGs through mobilisation of scientific and technical expertise from academia, civil society and the private sector.
AUT is ranked 16th in the Times Higher Education University Impact Rankings, which assess the social impact of universities against the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
