Creating Social Good and A Sustainable Tomorrow For Future Generations

SUSS is committed to sustainability and promotes the principles of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) responsibility in all aspects of its operations - from teaching and research to outreach.

As an institution of higher education centered on social sciences and the fulfilment of social good, sustainability and ESG responsibility are integral parts of our mission, and we take a leadership role in promoting sustainable practices and addressing global sustainability challenges.


We acknowledge the University's impact on the environment through its operations, such as energy consumption and waste generation. Therefore, we are dedicated to reducing our carbon footprint and fostering environmental sustainability in our core operations. To this end, we will strive to:

  • Reduce greenhouse gas emissions, energy consumption and waste generation.
  • Expand the use of renewable energy sources while decreasing our reliance on non-renewable ones.
  • Encourage sustainable procurement practices.
  • Safeguard natural resources.

At our institution of higher education, we believe in social responsibility as an essential component of our mission. To promote social justice, equity and inclusion within our community and beyond, we will work to:

  • Foster an inclusive and welcoming community that values all individuals and perspectives.
  • Advocate for social good and equity through experiential learning and the application of knowledge in the community to impact lives, and providing equitable access and opportunity.
  • Foster a culture of wellness and well-being that nurtures physical and mental wellbeing for our community members.
  • Model ethical conduct in all aspects of our operations.

We recognise the importance of good governance for achieving our sustainability and ESG objectives, as well as for fostering transparency and accountability in our operations. To this end, we will strive to:

  • Establish and sustain effective governance structures and processes that promote our sustainability and ESG objectives.
  • Assure that decision-making procedures take into account environmental considerations, and risks are appropriately managed and addressed.
  • Foster a culture of ethical behaviour, integrity and accountability.
  • Communicate openly and honestly with our stakeholders regarding our sustainability and ESG performance.
