Sapienza first in Italy for clean energy and among the first Italian universities for sustainability
The second edition of the Impact Rankings developed by Times Higher Education assesses universities' performances against the 17 Sustainable Development Goals in the United Nations’ Agenda 2030.
The 2020 edition, published on April 22, 2020, ranks Sapienza first in Italy for SDG7 Affordable and Clean Energy. At international level, our University is in the 101-200 section, whereas, on a national level, is among the first 5 universities after Bologna and L'Aquila with a score of 76,6. Scores for each institution are based on the goals achieved for the “Partnership for the Goals” agenda plus the best three achievements in the additional sections. The most effective results for Sapienza are the ones related to the following goals: Decent work and economic growth (SDG8), Industries, Innovation and Infrastructure (SDG9) and Reduce inequality within and among countries (SDG10).
Sapienza, for the first time in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings, has long ago embraced the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development by promoting energetic and environmental sustainability through a series of practical initiatives and activities. The UN Agenda 2030 includes all areas of economic and social development aiming at a more sustainable future for everyone in the world.
