Sustainability report

The sustainability activities are summarized annually in the sustainability report, which tells to our stakeholders the actions taken and the results obtained by Ca' Foscari, illustrating the impacts on the economic, environmental and social level for the territory and the community.

Our aim is not merely to showcase the actions that have been undertaken with regard to our social responsibility but to strengthen our dialogue with our stakeholders and build a two-way relationship with the local community.

Since 2013 the University planning and report documents have been harmonized and standardized: all the results of the sustainability activities, research, training, technology transfer and organizational performance are now collected in the Relazione Unica di Ateneo (University General Report), which is published on Ca' Foscari website in July of each year, after the approval of the organs.

The Sustainability Report describes data and results shown in the Relazione Unica d'Ateneo and in the Financial Report as part of an integrated sustainability strategy, highlighting the positive impacts of each activity regarding the protection of the environment, the welfare of the community of Ca' Foscari and the sustainable development of the territory.


Sustainability Report 2019

The Sustainability Report 2019 presents the activities undertaken by the University in the field of environmental and social sustainability. This year again, the Sustainability Report follows the GRI (Global Reporting Initiative) Standard and explains how the university’s activities contribute to achieving the 17 goals of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, a commitment that Ca’ Foscari has included in its Strategic Plan 2016-2020.  In line with previous editions, the 2019 Sustainability Report has been divided into eight macro areas, identifying for each area a set of key performance indicators (KPIs), introduced at the beginning of each chapter, whose trends are indicated for the last three years. These indicators are then shown in single final table for easier consultation. To give a general overview, at the beginning of the document there are some summary sheets with the main data and results for 2019, as well as some information on the evolution in 2020, a year which, due to the Covid emergency, will be exceptional in trend, otherwise comparable with others.
