Sustainable Ca' Foscari is the University program which works to promote sustainability and include it as a perspective within all University activities.

This commitment is included in the University Statute and the results are presented to its stakeholders annually in the Sustainability Report.

Sustainability Board

Ca’ Foscari’s Sustainability Board is composed of the Department Delegates. The Board is responsible for outlining and promoting sustainability strategies, working in partnership with the Rector’s Delegate for Sustainability. The Board’s aim is to define a shared vision among the Departments, in order to strengthen the university’s commitment to achieving the goals of the 2030 Agenda. It does this by enhancing the good practices which are already being implemented and proposing new projects, taking into account the diversity and variety of Ca’ Foscari’s community.
