The International Sustainable Campus Network (ISCN) provides a global forum to support leading colleges, universities, and corporate campuses in the exchange of information, ideas, and best practices for achieving sustainable campus operations and integrating sustainability in research and teaching.
Trinity College Dublin, the University of Dublin, has committed in its strategic plan to becoming the first Irish University to join and maintain membership of the ISCN. In doing so Trinity has committed to the three key principles outlined in the ISCN charter.
As a member of the ISCN, Trinity will connect with a rich global network of university sustainability initiatives from across the world, learning from best practice and helping to share our own lessons learned from our sustainability initiatives.
The signatories of the ISCN-GULF Sustainable Campus Charter acknowledge that organisations of research and higher education have a unique role to play in developing the technologies, strategies, citizens, and leaders required for a more sustainable future. Signature of the present charter represents an organisation’s public commitment to aligning its operations, research, and teaching with the goal of sustainability. The signatories commit to:
- implement the three ISCN/GULF sustainable campus principles
- set concrete and measurable goals for each of the three principles, and strive to achieve them
- report regularly and publicly on their organisations’ performance in this regard
