UNICA Green Pledge

 

We are the universities in the capitals of Europe. We Pledge to Become Greener 

We acknowledge that Environmental Sustainability is at our core mission and as universities, we have a unique:

  • potential and capacity to enhance knowledge and understanding, and provide necessary skills and innovation;
  • responsibility and duty toward raising awareness and enhancing sustainability literacy for students, staff and communities;
  • position and reason to develop our campuses as living laboratories of environmental sustainability in practice.

 

To meet the global environmental challenges we commit to:

  • promoting environmental sustainability in every aspect of our work at universities;
  • set environmental sustainability on top of our priorities;
  • work closely with policy makers, municipalities & communities, industry & business and other universities;
  • share examples of our green practice, evaluate and report our status, plans and progress to all stakeholders.
