Policy Statement on Environmental Sustainability

At Western Mindanao State University, we are committed to promoting environmental sustainability and taking active measures to address the pressing challenges posed by climate change. We recognize the importance of energy conservation, waste management, and responsible water usage in mitigating the detrimental effects on our planet. As such, we have formulated the following policy to guide our actions and drive positive change:

energy conservation

Energy Conservation

A. We prioritize energy efficiency by adopting technologies and practices that minimize energy consumption across our operations.
B. We encourage the use of renewable energy sources and aim to increase the proportion of renewable energy in our energy mix.
C. We promote awareness and provide training to employees and stakeholders on energy conservation practices, emphasizing the significance of reducing energy waste.

Waste management

Waste Management
