Sustainable Development Goals

Overview Sustainable Development Goals

HAS University of Applied Sciences contributes to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's)

It is obvious that our world is changing at an unprecedented rate. This entails a series of social challenges in the agri-food and living environment domain.

For example, agri-food companies have to operate as sustainably, climate-neutral and circularly as possible within ten to fifteen years. At the same time, international food production must be increased and safety guaranteed. Nutritionally, the food must become much healthier. And all against a drastically changing background. The migration to the cities, the changing climate, the aging agricultural workforce, the changing field of distribution and so on. In the meantime, these challenges also offer many opportunities for everyone who is aware of them.

SDG's as a guiding framework

Based on its mission, HAS University of Applied Sciences is fully committed to contributing to the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations (UN): sustainable development goals that, according to the UN, "should make the world a better place in 2030".
