Achievement of Commitment

Mapua Institute of Technology-Philippines endeavors to be a part of the solution to the global issue on sustainable development and sustainable resource (SD&SR). Hence, it commits to enhance the integration of SD & SR to the teaching and learning in all programs.

How this will be achieved

In 2011, MIT-Philippines established the Sustainable Development Research Office (SDRO) that focuses on sustainable development research and research related activities. Among the research related activities are the conduct of fora, seminar, conference, networking, and workshop. In mid 2012, SDRO will conduct an environmental and occupational toxicology workshop, to be participated in by government agencies, industries, academia and non-government organizations. This is to be conducted with the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency through Swedish Chemicals Agency, Sweden that aims to achieve a non-toxic environment. Apart from these activities, MIT included in its commitments the initiatives on carbon footprint reduction (CFR). By 2015, it is expected that there will be full implementation of the integration of SD & SR in all programs and research activities.
