Overview

Sunway University Takes A Leading Role in Sustainable Development

Environmental Sustainability is indelibly ingrained in the DNA of Sunway University. The university is part of an academic complex that is located on the rim of what was once a barren hole in an area of mined-out wasteland. Today, this rehabilitated mining hole is the centre of Sunway City, a smart, digital city that has expanded by adopting sustainable urbanization practices.

Sunway University is dedicated to championing sustainability efforts within and around the campus by instilling sustainable practices into the various aspects of the university experience such as ensuring high standards in sustainability research, sustainable work practices and sustainable consumption.

The University is in the pursuit of nurturing a community of socially and ecologically responsible individuals who inturn are creating an impact within the wider community within the broader context of sustainable cities and communities. Sunway University has assumed a pioneering role not only in managing resources but also in supporting the government in realising the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SGDs). In accordance with that, The Sunway Smart Sustainable Campus Committee (SSCC) was set up in 2017 to brainstorm, innovate and make recommendations to guide campus-wide policies and initiatives.
