SDG 12


Responsible Consumption and Production

Ensure sustainable consumption and production patterns

The University has established practices that involve waste segregation, composting, and recycling efforts, which are aimed at reducing waste.  The Food Quality Assurance program makes certain that the campus community has access to wholesome, reasonably priced meals. Additionally, the university is currently working on implementing sustainable purchasing practices to further its sustainability efforts.


Challenges and Achievements in Responsible Consumption and Production

The findings related to Sustainable Development Goal 12 (SDG 12) indicate significant progress in operational measures to promote responsible consumption and production practices, reflecting a commitment to enhancing operational procedures and integrating sustainability into production and consumption systems. Evidence from various policies such as ethical sourcing, waste disposal, plastic minimization, and disposable item policies in 2023 demonstrates the university's dedication to sustainable approaches. However, concerning the proportion of recycled waste, there are challenges in achieving significant improvements, highlighting the need for more effective waste management and recycling practices to promote responsible consumption and production. Regarding sustainable report publication, while there was consistency in previous years, a significant decline in 2023 suggests a lack of sustainable report publication.
