Sixteen Australian Universities in the top 100 for Sustainability Worldwide

Australian universities have done very well in the QS World University Rankings for Sustainability 2024. There are 16 Australian universities in the top 100, based on environmental, social and governance (ESG) challenges. This includes many large capital city universities, which I would have assumed would have more difficulty with sustainability, due to densely built inner city campuses. The regional universities have ranked lower. This may reflect the amount of specialist expertise needed to document sustainability, rather than level of sustainability itself. One way around that would be for students to undertake this as part of their coursework.

  1.  7 University of Sydney
  2.  9 University of Melbourne
  3. 11 University of New South Wales (UNSW Sydney)
  4. 23 Monash University
  5. 30 Australian National University (ANU)
  6. 36 University of Queensland
  7. 40 Griffith University
  8. 43 University of Technology Sydney
  9. 49 University of Adelaide
  10. 57 Macquarie University
  11. 62 RMIT University
  12. 62 University of Wollongong
  13. 66 Deakin University.
  14. 74 University of Newcastle, Australia (UON)
  15. 89 Curtin University
  16. 100 Queensland University of Technology (QUT)
