Impact Rankings 2020: responsible consumption and production

The Times Higher Education Impact Rankings are the only global performance tables that assess universities against the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). We use carefully calibrated indicators to provide comprehensive and balanced comparisons across three broad areas: research, outreach and stewardship.

This table on SDG 12 – responsible consumption and production measures universities’ research on responsible consumption and their approach to the sustainable use of resources.

The list includes 360 universities from 70 countries.
