ETH Zurich is one of the few universities in the world that can look back on over 20 years of commitment to sustainability.
The subject has been embedded in decision-making at the highest level since 2008, when ETH Zurich set up its new coordinating office for sustainability, "ETH Sustainability", and made it directly responsible to the President.
Sustainability is an integral part of the research, education and operations of ETH Zurich. "Sustainable Worlds" is one of five strategic focus areas for the period 2012-2016. ETH Zurich has also introduced a sustainability reporting as well as an environmental and energy concept.
