TLDRoffon

The University of Greenwich continues to be among world’s best 200 in global ranking of universities’ social, environmental and economic impact.

The University of Greenwich continues to be among world's best 200 in global ranking of universities' social, environmental and economic (sustainability) impact.

The Times Higher Education (THE) University Impact Rankings assesses universities' impact on society and the planet, based on the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

Greenwich continued to hold its place within the top 200 Universities in the world and performed particularly well in the following categories:

* Reduced Inequalities (68th)
* Responsible Consumption and Production (24th)
* Climate Action (75th)
* Life on Land (66th)
* Partnership for the Goals (77th)

Vice Chancellor of the university, Professor Jane Harrington, said: "Here at the University of Greenwich, we are immensely proud of our incredible lecturers, researchers, technicians and administrative staff and the work they do. So, it is extremely rewarding, and richly deserved, for them to be further recognised for the impact of all that hard work.

"We're proud to take our place in the world as being a leader on these vital issues for societies, and are committed to continuing to work to really make a global difference. These issues are part of our core values as a university and we will continue to make them central to everything we do. 

"Being consistently recognised for our work in these key categories shows that while there is still plenty to be done, our impact on changing the world for the better is something to celebrate and be extremely proud of."

Universities supply their own data which THE then measures and ranks in accordance with the United Nations' Sustainable Development Goals.

This is the second edition of the Impact rankings, and just another example of the way the university continues to rank with the best in world across many measurements.
