Sustainable practices are embedded in all of the University’s operations, modelling innovative ways to maximise social and environmental value.

From the Sustainability Charter, the University will:

  • develop and maintain its campuses as living laboratories of sustainable communities;
  • lead technological, financial and social innovation through applied sustainability projects;
  • instil sustainability principles in procurement decisions, across product life cycles and supply chains; and
  • implement investment strategies consistent with the University’s commitment to sustainability and its financial and legal responsibilities.

We would love to hear your thoughts. Consider these sample questions below:

  1. How can we model innovative ways to maximise social and environmental value?
  2. What are the priority areas of our operations that should be elevated in the Plan?

Please give us your ideas beyond these questions too! E-mail your feedback using the title Operations to sustainability-plan@unimelb.edu.au
