Sustainability

Sustainability is a key part of the ACU Mission to promote the common good and social justice. The University recognises its responsibility to cut its environmental impact and place sustainability into its decision making, teaching and research.

ACU is taking a range of actions to reduce its environmental impacts through energy efficiency, water conservation, recycling and re-use of its waste, and constructing sustainable buildings.

Presently, ACU is one of Australia’s most efficient users of energy and water and it has set targets to ensure it maintain that performance, and to increase its recycling and reuse of waste to some of the highest in the University sector. .
