AUT’s Sustainability Roadmap to 2025 outlines sustainability objectives, priority actions and targets across learning, research, governance, and facilities. It supports AUT’s contribution towards the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
Launched in October 2018 by the Minister of Climate Change, the roadmap was developed by the Vice-Chancellor's Taskforce for Sustainability, with input from staff and students.
In 2021, the taskforce restructured itself as the VC’s Sustainability Steering Group and includes both academic and professional staff. The group is the guardian of the roadmap, providing advice and ensuring that progress on targets is being made, and also updating the roadmap to reflect changes in technology, policy, economy and society.
The Sustainability Roadmap describes AUT's core sustainability concepts, directions, mission and vision and explains some of the things students and staff can do to be part of making AUT more actively sustainable.
The Sustainability Plan is a companion document to the Sustainability Roadmap, providing detailed explanations of our sustainability objectives, example actions and targets.
The Sustainability Roadmap supports AUT’s contribution towards the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals. The goals describe how we can achieve a better future, addressing global challenges like poverty, inequality and climate change.
