  • Collaborate across cities, regions, countries and continents with other signatory institutions as part of a collective international response;
  • Using our own unique ways, inform, share our learning and account to both local and global communities our progress toward the Sustainable Development Goals;
  • Annually report on 'how does my institution contribute to the Goals and what more can we do'.

For close to two decades, DLSU-D has been at the forefront of adopting sustainability practices and integrating it into the University’s various projects and initiatives.
