AUC is supporting academic research to address climate change, but we also know it’s just as important to create a sustainable environment at home.
We tackle sustainability from every angle; decreasing the University's carbon footprint, promoting environmental research and education, implementing recycling programs and raising public awareness. In order to carry out these projects, AUC has established the Office of Sustainability, the Research Institute for a Sustainable Environment (RISE), a Center for Sustainable Development.
The Center for Sustainable Development (CSD) helps Egypt face the challenges of sustainability. It integrates all the AUC schools and research bodies to develop innovative, creative and achievable green solutions for the challenges facing the sustainable development of Egypt and the region.
