3. Objectives

The higher education institution explains what qualitative and/or quantitative as well as temporally defined sustainability goals it has set, how these are operationalised and how their level of achievement is monitored.

The Sustainability Guidelines of the Environmental Campus Birkenfeld, together with the Mission Statement and the University Development Plan of Trier University, set the future direction. Annual targets, as well as concrete measures, support and accelerate this process.

By 2020, targets for the following sustainability aspects have been set
by the Sustainability Council at the Environmental Campus, with some of these targets already implemented in the first year:

Promotion of biodiversity at the Umwelt-Campus

Sustainability in procurement

Establish a circular economy strategy for the environmental campus

Promotion of sustainable mobility 

Saving resources

Energy saving

Communication of sustainability issues in the social environment

Family-friendly university

Involvement of students in sustainability management

The achievement of the sustainability goals was evaluated by the Sustainability Council of the Environmental Campus. The current status, as well as supplementary goals, can be found in the chapter "Goals 2020" of the current german sustainability report.
