UBC confirms place as global leader for sustainability following THE Impact rankings

Published 15 August 2022

The University of British Columbia has placed 13th overall (out of more than 1,400 institutions) in the 2022 Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Ranking.

The Impact rankings focus on institutional efforts to advance the United Nations sustainable development goals (SDG) which promote environmental, social and economic well-being across the planet.

UBC President and Vice-Chancellor Prof. Santa J. Ono said: “In recent years, universities and their connections to industry have never been more important to the advancement of innovation to the ultimate benefit of society.

“We’re also seeing tremendous advancement in the development and application of tools to combat climate change globally with new companies founded by UBC researchers, students and postdocs, such as Carbin Minerals and Takachar who both recently received recognition and funding from XPRIZE and the Musk Foundation."
