Taking the lead on global grand challenges

At the University of Leeds, we are committed to embedding sustainability in everything we do. To us, sustainability means creating value for society by taking responsibility for our economic, cultural, social and environmental impacts. We draw on the diverse expertise of our students, staff and partners to collaborate in finding sustainable solutions to global challenges, and to maintain our position as world-leaders in sustainability.

Sustainability is a journey. Though society may not have all of the answers now, we are committed to using the University’s assets to tackle global challenges. On our website, you can explore what’s happening across the University, including our world-leading research and education, how we’re using our campus to find solutions to local and world challenges, and what you can do to be a part of our sustainable community.

SDG wheelWe use the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs) to help guide our activity, and we do so inclusively, making sure everyone’s voice is heard and considered along the way. Read more about the University’s positive actions to impact the 17 Sustainable Development Goals.
