According to the Times Higher Education’s fourth annual Impact Rankings, the University of Alberta is the world’s 11th most sustainable post-secondary institution.
The ranking came as a result of the ongoing efforts of the university to create sustainability on campus and in the local plus global community through its focus on advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goals for 2030.
U of A president Bill Flanagan said: “Placing 11th in the THE Impact Rankings is a tremendous achievement. It highlights that the U of A is one of very few universities in the world with the excellence and range to play a lead role in solving the full range of global challenges and help to create a more sustainable, just and equitable world.”
The ranking lists more than 1,400 participating universities according to their contribution to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals to be achieved by 2030 as outlined by the United Nations. Times Higher Education compares universities across three areas in the categories of outreach, research and stewardship, after which a closer look is taken at the thematic areas for each category with a special focus on the academic output.
