EUA survey report on Greening in European higher education institutions (2021)
Higher education institutions are key actors in the transition towards carbon neutrality and sustainable societies, as well as in reaching the objectives of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda and the European Union’s Green Deal. They address environmental sustainability in their research and education missions and are actively involved in a broad range of forward-thinking activities.
The EUA survey 2021 on greening at higher education institutions was conducted among higher education institutions across the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and beyond on greening and environmental sustainability. It gathered evidence of institutions’ diverse activities on and approaches to greening. It collected good practices and serves as inspiration in identifying opportunities and challenges, as well as exploring the scope for collective action and policy advocacy.
