From the way we plan, construct and operate our buildings, to how we reduce and manage waste and travel to and around our campuses – we’re always looking at ways to reduce our impact on the environment.

Recent highlights

UNSW Sydney marked World Environment Day with the release of the Environmental Sustainability Report 2023.

The report marked the second year of implementation for our Environmental Sustainability Plan 2022-24, and also marked a sobering year in climate records. Last year was officially the warmest year on record since temperature measurements started in 1850. This alarming record underscores the continued need for UNSW to pave the way towards a future that is environmentally sustainable and secure for all.
