Sustainability and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)

Trinity Global is committed to supporting and promoting Sustainability and the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to the world

Sustainability at Trinity

The UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are based on core values focused on the achievement of 17 key goals. Ireland is ranked in the top 15 countries within the UN’s sustainability rankings. Reflecting the country’s vision for the SDGs, Trinity College Dublin has established a research environment which responds to the challenges and opportunities of the global future. Through teaching and research, Trinity works to achieve a healthy and sustainable planet by uniting the results of scholarly and scientific research in Sciences, Health Sciences, Social Sciences, and Arts and Humanities together.

Trinity’s ‘University Green Campus Programme’ is now in place in order to engage the entire college community in a long-term commitment to enhance sustainability on campus and beyond. Committed to all methods of sustainable behaviour, the Trinity Global team utilises best practice in aspects such as international travel. We increasingly use remote conferencing as a means by which to organise and participate in international higher education fairs and meetings rather than attending in person. This reduced travel minimises our carbon footprint and carbon emissions which cause climate change. We also adopt a digital first approach to the production of our promotional materials and no longer print our flagship Undergraduate and Postgraduate Prospectus in any market except for India.

Trinity Global is committed to building new innovative partnerships and relationship towards encouraging students to become true global citizens.
