Green Campus Programme
Over the past decade, ATU, formerly GMIT has been one of the leading participants in the National Green Campus Programme.
ATU Mayo Campus was the first Institute of Technology in the world to achieve the Green Flag designation and this work has continued apace in both the ATU Mayo and Connemara campuses.
In 2018, the GMIT Galway and Cluain Mhuire campuses made a joint application to join the Green Campus programme.
ATU's Centre for Sustainability will build on this excellent ongoing work to establish ATU as a leader in Education for Sustainability and sustainability-related research.
GMIT won the ISCN Honorary Member Award in 2021.
In March 2021, GMIT became a signatory of the SDG Accord, which commits us to playing a transformational role in attaining the SDGs by 2030.
GMIT has also joined the Race to Zero for Universities and Colleges initiative, which commits us to reaching net zero GHGs as soon as possible, and by mid-century at the latest, in line with global efforts to limit warming to 1.5C.
