The University of Tasmania is proud to be the first Australasian Gold rated institution in the global Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System (STARS). We have worked together across all Colleges and Divisions and in partnership with our students to achieve 73.8 percent of available points. Earlier this year we recieved a ranking of #1 in the world on Climate Action in the Times Higher Education Impact rankings. In addition, our Sustainability Integration Program for Students (SIPS) was recently awarded the 2022 International Green Gown Award for Student Engagement and our University was highly commended in the Sustainability Institution of the Year category. In lots of ways the real value of this recognition is that it helps with our aspiration to be making a difference both here in Tasmania and far beyond our shores and to share how universities can be leading in taking action for our climate.
Join us online to explore our campus community food gardens, hear about how we are reducing embodied carbon in new buildings, and virtually visit our first green roof. You will hear from staff and students working to rehabilitate a 200-year-old heritage orchard and how we are diverting organic materials to make compost on campus.
