The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology

The HKUST Sustainability/Net-Zero Office is committed to supporting HKUST in creating a more vibrant, inclusive, and sustainable campus to support the university’s goals and priorities. Our vision is for HKUST to become a global leader by transforming our campus into a net-zero carbon, zero waste, and positive impact living laboratory for experiential learning and research within a vibrant and engaged community.

Our sustainability goals for 2022:

  1. The HKUST 2028 Sustainability Challenge aligns with the university’s Strategic Plan and incorporates core elements in sustainability education, living lab, building our community, in addition to progress and performance.
  2. We also focus on accelerating our campus transition to a target of net-zero carbon emissions by 2050
  3. Implementing the Sustainable Smart Campus initiative that can maximize our use of the campus as a living lab.

Our initiative in accelerating sustainable development in Hong Kong:

We also focus on actions and educational strategies to prepare students to meet the challenges of a carbon-constrained world through the development of resources to build sustainability-related skills and competencies. We are hosting the program office of Hong Kong Jockey Club Responsible Consumer program that is launched across all 8 Universities in Hong Kong to ensure student engagement is consistent with the learning pedagogies and priorities.
