As one of Australia’s leading research and teaching universities, UNSW recognises the vital role the university sector has in driving the change to sustainability as well as the urgency with which this change must take place. 

This is UNSW’s second sustainability report and documents the sustainability performance of UNSW with a focus on the 2014 reporting period: 1 January to 31 December. This report includes our environmental and social performance, as well as an overview of how the University is tracking in sustainability research and education.

The intention of this report is to provide an annual sustainability snapshot so that we can clearly and transparently give an account of what we have been doing in the last year, what has been improving and where we see opportunities for positive change.
