Our sustainability strategy formulates strategic goals, fields of action and a catalog of measures for more sustainability in teaching and studies, research and transfer, as well as operations and organization.
The starting point for the sustainability strategy is the University Development Plan 2022-26, which defines sustainable university development as a strategic goal of the HSNR.
In a broad-based participation process, the university community developed the sustainability strategy during 2022. The core elements here were the university-wide workshop on the topic of "Mission Statement Sustainable University Development", further workshops and working groups, digital forums and qualitative interviews with students.
The coordination and editing of the sustainability strategy has been taken over by the "Sustainability Strategy Steering Group", which is made up of representatives from the departments and is chaired by our Sustainability Officer, Dr. Renker. The "Scientific Advisory Board for the Sustainability Strategy" provided expert advice. It includes twelve of our professors who have particular expertise in the field of sustainability.
Following a positive statement by the Senate, the Executive Board adopted the sustainability strategy in February 2023.
