Message from the President
Dear Students, Colleagues and Friends of KMUTT
It is my great pleasure to introduce you to our new KMUTT website on sustainability, a website providing comprehensive information on our focus to become a sustainable university demonstrating our desire to be a green campus clearly visible to our students, staff and to all communities who come to visit us.
For the current and future generation of students, sustainability is a leading issue. We want to educate our students and encourage them to learn outside of the classroom by transforming our campuses to be an ideal environment for developing awareness and innovative solutions to problems that will improve the world for current and future generations. To do that, our initiatives focus not only on campus operations but also on educating our students and working with our colleagues to ensure our graduates are environmentally conscious. Our campaigns are in place for reduce, reuse, recycle, energy conservation, water and waste management, purchasing and transportation, and planning for new construction and building renovation.
KMUTT is committed to environmental leadership in all of our activities from operations, teaching, to conducting research. Our commitments are
- to be a Green University providing a role model on Energy, Environment, Safety Management Systems, promoting the application of all these activities within the university,
- to encourage our students and colleagues to become change agents for helping the community and society have a better quality of life through the adoption of good energy, environment and safety management systems, and
- to strive for continual improvement in energy, environment and safety management systems to help achieve sustainability for all.
Despite our previous successes, hard decisions still remain in the future. Many green initiatives often require high up-front investment. However, we believe that the return on investment for green initiatives is often long-term with many and varied returns that will be environmentally beneficial for future generations.
I would like to thank all members and friends of KMUTT for what you personally achieve, each and every day, to help KMUTT grow in a sustainable way and to educate our graduates, ensuring that their futures will be sustainable as well.
