The University of Hong Kong
In a rapidly changing world with diminishing natural resources, persisting poverty and enduring inequalities, institutions must step up to ensure a future that is sustainable, resilient and inclusive. As a university with global reach and influence, the University of Hong Kong (HKU) is determined to bolster its commitment to sustainability. HKU is committed to upholding
“the core values of academic freedom and our respect for academic success. As an institution of higher learning and compass for morality and integrity in the community, we will embrace equality, ethics, inclusivity, diversity and transparency in all that we do, and will aspire to the highest standards of corporate and academic governance. The principles of sustainability will guide our planning and development at every level. We will respond purposefully to the challenges identified by the United Nations through the Sustainable Development Goals, and play our part in addressing the issues of inequality, health, education, disaster prevention, poverty, environment and well-being identified therein. We are superbly placed to lead a cross-cultural and civilisational dialogue.”
In this latest version of the sustainability report, we have adopted a new approach and format by aligning the University's consolidated efforts to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). With this new format, we hope to more holistically showcase HKU’s efforts to tackle all aspects of sustainability.
