Sustainability at the University of Melbourne
Our campuses are developed as models of sustainable and resilient communities, and we’ve set a target to achieve carbon neutrality before 2030. A key focus is on further energy reduction and transitioning our energy supply to renewable energy sources.
We have achieved a world-leading six-star Green Building Council of Australia (GBCA) Green Star Communities rating that informs campus planning and activities over a five-year planning cycle.
