08 December 2023      Martin Higgs, AUDE Communications and Campaigns Manager

We are pleased to invite you to read the 2023 Sustainability Leadership Scorecard Annual Impact Report available now from AUDE and EAUC. This shares insights into the current statistics and recent developments of the SLS, examines what these results suggest about the sector’s strategic approach to sustainability, and makes recommendations that support a shift towards more inclusive strategic sustainability action in the sector.

The report emphasises the need for a whole-institution approach, as an impactful mechanism for ensuring solutions support all job levels, specialist areas and faculties, and should be delivered alongside proactive networking on sustainability learning.

Key findings include:

  • 64% increase in overall engagement with the tool, which includes both universities and colleges
  • Positive impact upon the UN SDGs 4 (Quality Education), 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy), and 13 (Climate Action)
  • The breadth of responsibilities for leadership and strategic teams around sustainability is evident across the sector, but this must begin to prioritise developing more robust support for learning, teaching, and research, to prevent this priority area falling behind
  • Since its introduction 2022, the new Platinum ranking has been achieved by several universities and colleges already
  • The flexibility of the SLS is inviting to users: there is a relatively even distribution among the framework areas completed by institutions.

So, join us in celebrating the strides being made towards a more sustainable future in higher and further education. You can download the report on our website now. Remember this is a free tool for AUDE members – the more of us that use it the greater the extent of the co-operative sector learning.
