Örebro University is committed to sustainable development permeating all of its activities. The basis for our efforts is laid out in Chapter 1, Section 5 of the Higher Education Act: “In the course of their operations, higher education institutions shall promote sustainable development to assure for present and future generations a sound and healthy environment, economic and social welfare, and justice.”
Örebro University’s policy for sustainable development sets out the University’s level of ambition as that of being an active and responsible player in the work with the UN’s sustainable development agenda, Agenda 2030, and its global goals. Our efforts aim to guarantee sound living conditions for future generations, locally as well as globally.
Working to integrate all three dimensions of sustainable development in its operations, the University has chosen to include and bring together environment, equal opportunity, as well as work and study environment under the same umbrella in its sustainable development efforts.
