HKUST 2028 Sustainability Challenge

HKUST strives to become a global leader in sustainability education by transforming the Clear Water Bay campus into a living laboratory for experiential learning, demonstrating cutting-edge research and sustainable operations within a vibrant and engaged community.

This transition requires a hands-on learning environment where the campus itself is an important part of the learning process, where graduates are exceptionally prepared to solve pressing issues locally and globally, and where all members of the HKUST community contribute to this goal. To facilitate this vision, the campus will strive to become a carbon neutral, zero waste, net positive environmental impact campus.

The first HKUST sustainability master plan (2020 Sustainability Challenge) was launched in 2015 with four areas of focus (Operations, Education, Community, Demonstration). The strategy has successfully come to a close. The University is excited to announce the new HKUST 2028 Sustainability Challenge that will continue the four focus areas.
