Impact Rankings 2021: 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 comparison across four broad areas: research, stewardship, outreach and teaching.

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 503 institutions from 75 countries/regions.
