The University of Modena and Reggio Emilia wants to pursue the principle of Sustainable Development and Sustainability in all its many aspects: from Environmental Sustainability to Economic and Social Sustainability. This commitment translates into the promotion and implementation of actions aimed at Sustainability, firstly within the University, and secondly in the promotion and enhancement of initiatives outside the University itself (research projects, public engagement activities).
A permanent observatory of the state of sustainability of our University is already active on issues such as climate change, food, education, energy, inclusion and social justice, mobility, waste and resources.
The Departments of the University of Modena have differentiated know how and expertise on various sustainability subjects ranging from Engineering to Economics, thereby including - at the Department of Economics Marco Biagi - sustainable and green finance.
