Alliance of Sustainable Universities in Austria

The Alliance of Sustainable Universities in Austria is a national alliance of 16 Austrian universities, which work together for a sustainable planet Earth. Since 2018 Montanuniversität Leoben is an active member. The Alliance unites experience in the areas of sustainability in teaching, research and university management and thus supports universities in these areas in order to work towards a society of the future.

Expert Meetings and Working Groups

RIC Leoben represents MUL at the Alliance Expert Meetings, which provide a platform for the exchange of experience and networking among the universities on the topic of sustainability. Additionally, we have recently been active in the Strategy Working Group. Founded in 2019 the Strategy Working Group has two established goals:

  • Exchange of experience and supporting universities to create a university specific sustainability strategy/concept
  • Strategic development of the Alliance of Sustainable Universities in Austria

Other Working Groups are:

  • CO2 Neutral Universities
  • Sustainable Mobility
  • Education for Sustainable Development (ESD)
  • Sustainable Procurement
  • Sustainability Entrepreneurship
  • Sustainability Strategy
  • Environmental management
