Auckland University of Technology (AUT)

Auckland University of Technology (AUT)

Auckland University of Technology is the second largest university in Aotearoa New Zealand. We have been a university since 2000, but a place of learning for 120 years.
We’re proud to be one of the world’s best modern universities – Times Higher Education has ranked us #41 in the top universities under 50 years of age and among the top 1% of universities in the world.

AUT is committed to achieving improved sustainability outcomes and taking action in light of local and global challenges. We continue to nurture a culture of sustainability through learning, teaching, research, partnerships and how we operate our facilities.
AUT’s Sustainability Roadmap to 2025 outlines sustainability objectives, priority actions and targets across learning, research, governance, and facilities. It supports AUT’s contributions toward the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals.

A recent report into our progress on its key sustainability priorities and objectives has found we are on track to meet a range of critical targets across our teaching, research, and operations.

These include ensuring all undergraduate programmes develop sustainability literacy, values, and practices, increasing the number of peer-reviewed SDG research outputs, and halving our CO2e emissions by 2025.
