More about sustainable development at Örebro University
Our work on sustainable development is based on the global goals for sustainable development – Agenda 2030 – and the Higher Education Act which states that 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”.
Our goals are to:
- Integrate sustainable development in research, teaching and learning.
- Integrate sustainable development in decision making, procurement and the operational aspects of all activities.
- Collaborate with various players on sustainable development, both locally, nationally and internationally.
Our work is set out in an action plan that includes activities within the areas of environment, equal opportunity, as well as work and study environment. Work with sustainable development is a central part of our quality assurance efforts.
