The Wilson College of Textiles integrates sustainability in all that we do to improve our society and protect the environment. By our actions, we demonstrate leadership in meeting the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Sustainability is one of the college’s three strategic priorities, as well as one of the five core values.
