Dear Students, Colleagues and Friends of KMUTT

It is my great pleasure to introduce you to our KMUTT website on sustainability, a website providing comprehensive information on our focus to become a sustainable university with our new campaign “KMUTT sustainable university for SDG 2030 “, demonstrating our desire to be a green campus with comply to SDG and 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 which focus on student’s Green Heart. 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 sustainability conscious. Our campaigns for sustainability are in place on 17 SDG goals including SDG 1-no poverty SDG2-zero hunger SDG 3 – Good health and well-being SDG 4 – Quality education SDG 5 – Gender equality SDG6-Clean water and sanitation SDG 7-Affordable and clean energy SDG 8 – Decent work and economic growth SDG 9 – Industry, innovation, and infrastructure SDG 10 – Reduced inequalities SDG 11 – Sustainable cities and communities SDG 12 – Responsible consumption and production SDG 13 – Climate action SDG14-Life below water SDG15-Life on land SDG 16 – Peace, justice and strong institutions SDG 17 – Partnerships for the goals

KMUTT is committed to sustainability leadership in all of our activities from operations, teaching, to conducting research. Our commitments are
– to be a Green and Sustainable University providing a role model on Energy, Environment, Safety Management Systems, and provide sustainability platform to promote sustainability leadership.
– 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 SEP for SDG concept
– 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 and sustainable initiatives is often long-term with many and varied returns that will be environmentally beneficial for future generations and sustainable for all in KMUTT. 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.
