Future Ready, La Trobe’s main strategic framework, identifies sustainability as a key focus for the University. One of the key enablers to achieving the goals of the strategy is to operate sustainably and ethically.

We have practical operational initiatives in place to minimise our own impacts and sustainability is embedded in our course offerings and research areas.
