This distinctive ranking methodology assesses universities' efforts and commitment toward achieving the 17 SDGs defined by the United Nations in 2015. These goals encompass a broad spectrum of critical social and economic development issues, including poverty, hunger, health, education, climate change, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, environment, social justice, and more.
To qualify for participation in this prestigious ranking, universities are required to engage in a minimum of four sustainable development goals. Among these goals, the seventeenth goal, which focuses on partnerships for the goals, is compulsory.
