Greening in European higher education institutions

EUA survey data

Michael Gaebel, Henriette Stöber, Alison Morrisroe

Higher education institutions are key actors in the transition towards carbon neutrality and sustainable societies, as well as in reaching the objectives of the United Nations’ 2030 Agenda and the European Union’s Green Deal. They address environmental sustainability in their research and education missions and are actively involved in a broad range of forward-thinking activities.


The EUA survey on greening at higher education institutions is the first ever survey conducted among higher education institutions across the European Higher Education Area (EHEA) and beyond on greening and environmental sustainability. It gathers evidence of institutions’ diverse activities on and approaches to greening. It collects good practices and serves as inspiration in identifying opportunities and challenges, as well as exploring the scope for collective action and policy advocacy.
