About ANUgreen


ANUgreen is the University's environmental management program managed by the Facilities and Services Division.

Established in 1999 under the ANU environment policy, ANUgreen is responsible for implementing the University's Environmental Management Plan. It does this by working directly with the University community, and educating and empowering staff and students to play an active role in reducing our collective environmental impact.

Environmental Management Plan

The 2009- 2015 Environmental Management Plan (pdf 266KB) provides strategic direction for ANU to create a more sustainable university. It also outlines a roadmap with specific targets and strategies. This is the third EMP for the University.

The draft 2016-2020 EMP is currently being reviewed.


The University's ANUgreen program works as a catalyst for broader national and global change by demonstrating leadership and innovation of new policies and projects. This includes trialling new management approaches and initiatives which can then be replicated by other organisations. As a member of several national and global university sustainability networks, ANU is engaged in sharing best-practice knowledge with other leading institutions and collaboration to develop a culture of sustainability across the sector.  Read more about Partnerships.
