Embracing Sustainability: The Benefits of Choosing a Top-Ranked University

Nowadays, sustainability is more than just a buzzword: it is a key consideration for individuals and institutions.

For students who wish to make a significant impact and align their academic activities with their values, choosing a university that prioritise sustainability can offer a multitude of advantages.

University College Dublin has been named in the top 50 in the QS World University Rankings for Sustainability, achieving the highest result in Ireland and ranking 24th in Europe.

The QS World University Rankings: Sustainability 2024 Report compares 1,397 of the world’s universities against a range of metrics, to see which institutions are doing the most to tackle the world’s greatest environmental, social and governance (ESG) challenges.

This year UCD has been ranked as number one in Ireland, up from third last year in the inaugural 2022 rankings, and is now 50th globally, having climbed over 120 places. The impressive rise comes following the appointment of Professor Tasman Crowe as Vice President for Sustainability at UCD, a new top level role placing sustainability at the heart of the University’s education, research, governance, operations, and engagement activities.

UCD research spans a wide range of topics, including studies on energy markets, supply chain governance, algorithms and control within platform organisations, corporate social responsibility (CSR) and climate change, green finance, sustainability reporting, ethics and disaster management.
