What's new

Sustainability

UCD has been named in the top 50 in the QS World University Rankings for Sustainability 2024, achieving the highest result in Ireland and ranking 24th in Europe.

The impressive rise comes following the appointment of Professor Tasman Crowe as Vice President for Sustainability at UCD, a new top level role placing sustainability at the heart of UCD's education, research, governance, operations, and engagement activities.

Professor Crowe, who has been in post since June 2023, said ''this achievement reflects the high level of commitment of staff and students across the university to transitioning to more sustainable approaches and to the attainment of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), which span climate change, biodiversity, inequality, poverty, and a range of other environmental, social, economic and governance challenges.''

''The ranking underlines UCD's excellence in education, research and operations and its demonstrated commitment to good governance, equality, health, and wellbeing and to partnership for impact.''

''UCD has long been a prominent contributor to sustainability, with great strength in energy, agri-environmental systems, the circular economy, and humanitarian action, for example, and through innovative educational programmes. It also has a real appetite for the kind of interdisciplinary approaches and wider partnerships that are needed.''

UCD is ranked 22nd in the world in the 2021 Times Higher Education Impact Rankings, which benchmarks universities against the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). UCD rose 12 places in these rankings, following the university's new ‘Rising to the Future' strategy. One of the main areas of the strategy is striving to create a sustainable global society.

UCD was also ranked very highly amongst universities in Ireland for two individual SDGs:

  • UCD ranked 41st for SDG 8: Decent work and Economic Growth
  • UCD ranked 32nd for SDG 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
