As part of the Sustainability Centre we are creating a network of professionals, academics, businesses, public sector, and organisations. We believe to achieve our values and goals towards adopting a more sustainable world collaboration and synergies are important and needed for progress as stated in the SDG goal 17-Partnerships.

Our Goals

Our goal is to promote sustainable development across the region. As a college, we will work towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), developed by the United Nations, and we will support you to embed these goals into your business model. You can explore them here: THE 17 GOALS | Sustainable Development ( We are also keen to promote and explore the potential of the circular economy within the businesses we engage with. To learn more about the circular economy and frame work, you can view this page by Ellen MacArthur Foundation, which is leading in the development and promotion of the 21st century economic model: What is a Circular Economy? | Ellen MacArthur Foundation.
