Sustainable Investments Strategy

The University’s Sustainable Investment Strategy 2030 forms part of our broader commitment to climate action and our vision to create a more sustainable future. Since 2014, when we first started measuring the carbon footprint of our investments as part of our environmental, social and governance (ESG) investment framework, we have reduced the carbon intensity and absolute emissions of our listed equity portfolio by 70% and 79% respectively (as of 30 September 2020).
