SDGs at Carleton University

As a distinguished research and teaching institution, Carleton University has a responsibility to take a leading role in addressing the challenges arising from climate change, developing solutions, and showcasing opportunities for the campus community. Our vision is to become a leading Canadian university that shapes and strengthens sustainability in society and contributes to the well-being of the communities in which we operate.

Sustainability is now more important than ever, as it encompasses economic, environmental, and social dimensions. In 2015, the United Nations published ‘Transforming our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,’ which is a plan of action for people, planet, and prosperity. The publication outlines 17 Sustainable Development Goals and 169 targets, and aims to build on previous efforts by presenting a 15-year agenda that balances the economic, social, and environmental dimensions of sustainable development.

Below are the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals that are relevant to Carleton University in accordance with our sustainability plan. Click on each SDG to learn more about how Carleton University is addressing these goals!
