Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile (UC Chile) has a strong commitment to society, inspired by its catholic identity and inclusive vocation. Through work on its five university campuses, it contributes to the common good and the development of solutions to challenges that the country and the region face.

Founded in 1888, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile is one of the leading institutions in education and development of new knowledge in Chile and Latin America. UC Chile is ranked n°1 in the QS Latin America University Ranking.

Commitment to sustainability

UC Chile established its sustainability office in 2011, with focus on promoting sustainable management of campuses and fostering a culture of sustainability within its community. In 2018, the university created the Institute for Sustainable Development, an interdisciplinary unit aimed at coordinating and strengthening efforts in education and research. The university has developed a general training program in sustainability and integral ecology to ensure that all students at UC Chile take at least one sustainability course. Sustainability has also been incorporated into the graduation profile of students.

More recently, in 2019, the university committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2038, making it the first Chilean university to take on this challenge. The institution is implementing a strategy to reduce emissions, change the behaviour of the community, and promote sustainability through every activity.
