Seneca has signed the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Accord, a worldwide partnership to fight global injustice and advance the role of education in delivering the United Nation’s SDGs.
Signing the SDG Accord — which is hosted by Environmental Association for Universities and Colleges The Alliance for Sustainability Leadership in Education — is the next step in our commitment to a more sustainable Seneca. Through the Accord, Seneca will work towards attaining the SDGs by 2030 and share sustainable best practices with other institutions which will be incorporated in an annual report.
“Seneca is undertaking many new sustainability objectives that will interlink our social, environmental and economic goals that align with the SDGs,” said Don Forster, Office of Sustainability. “Signing the Accord provides us an opportunity to network with postsecondary leaders and community partners who share the common objective on integrating SDGs into our sustainable strategies.”
Seneca is one of nine Canadian institutions to have signed the SDG Accord.
