NTU opens sustainability office

Nanyang Technological University (NTU) in Singapore has opened a new Sustainability Office to coordinate and drive NTU’s sustainability efforts in a holistic and integrated way. To build on this momentum, the University has also released a 15-year Sustainability Manifesto. The Manifesto reflects NTU’s commitment to decarbonisation and sustainable development and will guide the University towards their goal of carbon neutrality by 2035.

The NTU Sustainability Manifesto recognises that sustainability is a grand and complex global challenge involving all sectors and all of society. To that end, in addition to striving for carbon neutrality, the University aims to:

  • Incorporate sustainability in its newly established interdisciplinary common core curriculum for all undergraduate students;
  • Launch new undergraduate, postgraduate and continuing education programme options on different aspects of sustainability;
  • Support and promote the principles of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals across the pillars of education, research, innovation and community;
  • Achieve 100% Green Mark Platinum certification for all eligible buildings on the main NTU campus; and
  • Reduce by 50 per cent NTU’s net energy utilisation, water usage, and waste generation, by March 2026, compared to the baseline levels of 2011.
