In yet another show of commitment to sustainability, De La Salle University-Dasmariñas joined the founding universities making a Nature Positive Pledge for the University of Oxford, United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

DLSU-D is among the 407 schools and universities around the world in the launching of the Nature Positive Universities Alliance – a global network of schools and universities that have made an official pledge to work towards a global Nature Positive goal in order to halt, prevent and reverse nature loss through addressing their own impacts and restoring ecosystems harmed by their activities.

Universities who have signed the Nature Positive Pledge and joined the Nature Positive Alliance commit to carrying out a baseline for their impacts, set smart targets for nature, carry out actions to meet sustainability targets, and share an annual report on their progress.

Through its various initiatives, DLSU-D has integrated sustainability and environmental actions in its curriculum, policies, and programs. The University also signed the UNEP’s SDG Accord in 2021.
