Over a thousand universities worldwide use the Sustainability Tracking, Assessment and Rating System (STARS) to help guide and share their sustainability activities. It is highly regarded as a versatile tool that encompasses long-term sustainability goals for already high-achieving institutions, as well as entry points of recognition for institutions that are taking first steps toward sustainability.
Yet within the Australasian region, STARS is still a relatively new tool. Just three institutions have submitted for a rating to date, albeit with a growing cohort of institutions now preparing their data and submissions.
If you would like to learn more about STARS and how it can support your institution’s sustainability journey, then you’re invited to join this webinar! Meet the leaders that were instrumental to their institutions becoming the first in Australasia to achieve a STARS rating. Our speakers will share exactly what’s involved – the good, the bad and the challenging! Hear first-hand about their experiences with using STARS to measure and improve sustainability performance, as well as utilise the entire process to engage with the campus community to celebrate best practice, while targeting action in areas where there’s more work to be done.
