Over the past seven years since obtaining ISO14001 Certification status, Singapore Polytechnic (SP) has systematically identified ten environmental areas for continual monitoring and improvements. In our short and medium term planning, we have intensely worked through the stages from establishing a basic environmental management system (EMS) to developing best practices in our laboratories, facilities and estates management and at the same time raise the level of awareness and capacity building in technology and skills. As we move on to build environmental sustainability in the long run, the set of environmental objectives and targets laid out here for the next three years have been carefully selected to ensure that our resources are focused on reducing serious adverse impacts on the environment and allocated to developing environmental training that translate into positive contribution. Click on each area to read our Performance Status & Targets, including those in the previous years. Read about Key Performance Indicators

Report Focus
With no campuses overseas and the main campus presently residing in the Dover Road area in Singapore, we recognise that our report should focus environmental sustainability of the campus and the indirect material economic and social impacts.
