City University of Hong Kong (CityU)


The CityU positions itself as a world-class university, one that provides quality professional education and pursues applicable research in a manner that balances growth with social responsibility and sustainability. Through the concerted efforts of the Council, Court members, staff, alumni and students, we encourage participation in programmes and initiatives so that everyone can articulate their concerns for the planet and the people, particularly in the areas of energy and water conservation, recycling programs and reducing our carbon footprint and caring for the society to ensure a sustainable future.

Sustainability at CityU

A University Charter of Social Responsibility was established by the Council in 2011. The objective of the Charter is to guide the conduct of activities at CityU so that the University's operation can be managed sensitively and responsibly, whilst giving due consideration to its impact on the environment and society; balancing growth with sustainability. In addition, it is possible to learn more through the Environmental Report 2021-2022.

The University’s sustainable development includes three constituent domains:

Environmental Sustainability

  • CityU's Environmental Policy seeks to ensure that our operations are conducted in an environmentally responsible manner. (e.g, recycling resources and reducing our carbon footprint)
  • Academic and administrative units are encouraged to devise implementation strategy to suit their respective needs within the parameters of University Guidelines.

Social Sustainability

  • Human Resource Office provides faculty and staff with people management and development services in a caring way to contribute to the fulfilment of the University's Mission. It seeks to develop a trusting culture and a constructive relationship to enable staff to realize their best potentials and maximize their contribution to the University.
