Our Alignments

Sustainable Development Goals

Our low-carbon targets are informed by the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) – particularly SDG 7, 11, 12, 13, 15 and 17. We aim to leave a positive mark on our local communities and the global stage by scaling these goals to suit our campus’ vision, mission, and low-carbon targets.
Image
We will take every opportunity to adopt affordable and clean energy to power our campus' daily operations.
Image
We will build a campus community that is resilient and ready for the multidimensional effects of climate change.
Image
We will inculcate responsible consumption and production habits among our staff and students. We will also model these sustainability values to local communities and our industry partners.
Image
We will be known as a campus that welcomes and encourages climate action. We strive to be a platform where members of our campus community and beyond can come together to create and innovate new sustainable solutions.
Image
As a university situated in one of the most biodiverse regions on earth, we will make every effort to conserve life both on- and offcampus. We will continue to make positive contributions to our natural surroundings through our research and projects.
Image
When undertaking the strategies outlined in this roadmap, we will actively seek out fruitful partnerships for the goals. We will extend an invitation for collaboration and synergy to all members of our campus and local community, as well as the private & public sectors.

Research

The most visible and traditional method for universities that may help to deliver the SDGs is their research in relevant topics

Stewardship

Universities are significant contributors of resources; not only from physical resources, but also through employees, faculty and students. How they make management provision is one factor in delivering the SDGs

Outreach

Instructors play a critical role in ensuring that there are enough qualified practitioners in delivering the SDGs as well as ensuring that all alumni take steps forward in key learning for future career sustainability
