The working group will identify opportunities, methods and priorities to maximise RMIT’s positive impact.

The RMIT SDG working group aims to develop recommendations for a University-level approach on how to drive RMIT’s impact through the SDG agenda and input this into the NEXT strategy process. The working group is made up of representatives from across RMIT’s Colleges and Portfolios.  

Through in-depth discussions and broad consultation across RMIT, the working group will identify opportunities, methods and priorities to maximise RMIT’s positive impact, build strategic relationships, and develop leadership to SDG and relevant multilateral agendas. 

Activated in March 2021, the working group will run in parallel to the NEXT strategy Directions phase, with all discussions and insights feeding directly in the NEXT strategy process.

Sustainable Development Goals

The United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) comprise 17 interlinked global goals designed to be a “blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all”. Sustainability is part of RMIT’s DNA. As a global University, RMIT has a long history of embedding sustainability at the core of our learning, teaching and research activities and working towards achieving sustainability across our Melbourne, Vietnam and Barcelona campuses.

This focus on sustainability has led RMIT to be ranked 3rd overall in the world in the 2021 Times Higher Education (THE) University SDGs Impact Rankings. In addition, RMIT is also ranked 2nd for SDG10: Reduced inequalities, 3rd for SDG17: Partnerships for the Goals, and 5th for SDG8: Decent Work and Economic Growth.
