SDG 13 - Climate Action

Nova University Lisbon contributes to tackle the SDG 13 collaborating at a European level to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon, climate-resilient society. NOVA is now discussing its Sustainability Policy which will facilitate its internal organizational transformation towards sustainable best practices, complying with the Green Deal, the Paris Agreement, and the Sustainable Development Goals. Some of NOVA's Academic Units are Eco-Schools, belonging to the largest global sustainable schools programme (developed in the context of SDG 12).



  • FCT participated in the definition of the national Long-term strategy for Carbon Neutrality of the Portuguese Economy by 2050.
  • EIT Climate-KIC is a Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC), working to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon, climate-resilient society. It identifies and supports innovation that helps society mitigate and adapt to climate change. It brings together partners in the worlds of business, academia, and the public and non-profit sectors to create networks of expertise, through which innovative products, services and systems can be developed, brought to market and scaled-up for impact. In Portugal, it works in collaboration with a number of organisations, including Nova University Lisbon.
