To create the necessary conditions for the development of an institutional commitment to Sustainability, two new positions were created in the organizational structure of Iscte. The Sustainability Director coordinates the development and implementation of principles, strategies, objectives, goals and activities to improve Iscte's Sustainability in the fields of research, teaching, university extension and operations.
The Sustainability Manager works directly with the Sustainability Director to implement new policies and the sustainability action plan.

It is made up of 12 members from the academic community, with the following composition: Sustainability Director, Vice-Rector for the area, Sustainability Manager, Quality Director, Quality Manager, and other members of the Iscte community appointed by the Director of Sustainability.
