Message from the Chief Sustainability Officer

Sustainability is not an abstract concept, but a global issue that directly impacts our present and future.

The Chinese University of Hong Kong embraces the vision of people, social, and environmental and economic harmonies in the pursuit of sustainability.  As one of Hong Kong’s pioneering universities, CUHK has local, national and global social responsibilities, which are incorporated in the vision of the University.  We have been actively engaged in nurturing sustainability-minded, socially empowered university members who are vocal on the issue and ready to translate novel ideas into action.  The energetic and programmatic participation of the CUHK community on all fronts in the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) embodies the University’s holistic approach to meeting the grand challenge of sustainability.

Sustainable Development Matters is a multi-faceted platform, which encapsulates thoughtful and engaging features that highlight the efforts and achievements of the CUHK community in driving sustainability.  We hope that you enjoy these features and that they provide food for thought and inspiration for incorporating the 17 SDGs into our everyday lives.
