Sustainability Reports

UniSC is committed to achieving sustainability in terms of teaching, research and how it operates. It is important to measure what we accomplish in this space in order to understand what has been achieved and what still needs to be done. The University captures measurable data where possible and qualitative information where measurable data is not available. UniSC feeds this information into internal and external reporting processes. UniSC has developed a biennial Sustainability Report, and annual Scorecard Reports, to highlight sustainability initiatives achieved, transparently track progress towards actions set out in the University's Carbon Management Plan and identify priority areas for the upcoming two-year period.
