Published 10 May 2023

The University of Sydney has been named one of the top universities in the world for sustainability following the publication of the QS World University Rankings: Sustainability 2023.

Sydney ranked 5th in the world and joint top in Australia in the ranking, which assesses 700 global institutions on how their research, teaching and community engagement tackles the world’s greatest environmental, social and governance challenges.

Vice-Chancellor and President, Professor Mark Scott, said: “We are building a generation of students who will learn personal, social and professional skills that contribute to the development of a sustainable future. Starting from next year, these new students will be tomorrow’s leaders, equipped to generate creative and adaptive solutions to complex socioecological sustainability problems.

"We put sustainability at the heart of our campus operations, environments and engagement activities and we welcomed the opportunity to participate in these inaugural rankings to demonstrate accountability and transparency in our broad and global commitment to sustainability. This commitment includes enriching lives through research and education, and creating resilient places and a responsible environmental footprint.”
