We launched our inaugural sustainability strategy in November 2017. The NUI Galway Sustainability Strategy 2017-2020 set out an ambitious vision to establish the University as a top-class, green, smart and healthy campus.  We have achieved significant progress over the last three years and our actions are already having an impact in Galway and globally.  While we are inspired and motivated by our progress to date, as 2020 draws to a close, we must look to the future, to a new decade, and plan for success beyond that laid out in our inaugural strategy. As a university community we are deeply committed to sustainability; we have identified sustainability as one of our four core values.  At an institutional level, sustainability is a key pillar of our new Strategic Plan: Shared Vision, Shaped by Values and NUI Galway is a signatory to the SDG Accord.   Against this back-drop and clear commitment from University leadership and our wider University community, our multi-disciplinary Community and University Sustainability Partnership (CUSP) team has led the development of a revised sustainability strategy. The draft NUI Galway Sustainability Strategy 2020-2025 reframes and affirms our ambition in sustainability, recognising that sustainability is now a core value of our institution. We would encourage you to please share you thoughts with us by submitting your feedback on this strategy by 18th October 2020 by completing the form at this link or emailing your feedback directly to sustainability@nuigalway.ie.
