Australian Catholic University (ACU) is committed to a more sustainable future.

This is why we set up the Sustainability Office, which helps the University to cut its environmental impact. For example:

  • ACU recently opened one of Australia’s most sustainable University buildings, The Daniel Mannix Building, at its St Patrick’s Campus
  • We’re saving energy through better lighting, low-energy computers and improved heating and cooling, and auditing
  • We're conserving water through the use of rain-water tanks and water efficient appliances on our campuses.
  • We're increasing the amount of recycling on our campuses.

If you're an ACU student or staff member then you can find out more about what you can do.

Alternatively, you can contact the Sustainability Office by emailing or
