AUC is supporting academic research to address climate change, but we also know it’s just as important to create a sustainable environment at home.
We tackle sustainability from every angle; decreasing the University's carbon footprint, promoting environmental research and education, implementing recycling programs and raising public awareness. In order to carry out these projects, AUC has established the Office of Sustainability, the Research Institute for a Sustainable Environment (RISE), a Center for Sustainable Development.
#1 Green Campus in North Africa by the GreenMetric World University Ranking.
AUC's Office of Sustainability has launched a new initiative for the Spring 2017 semester, which is placing centralized paper recycling boxes in all campus departments and offices. This initiative will help strengthen AUC's culture of sustainability by utilizing these boxes to recycle sheets of paper instead of throwing them away.
