As educators, we have the opportunity to impart our knowledge and skills and influence our stakeholders’ attitudes towards the voluntary protection of our environment. As such, we have undertaken the responsibility of nurturing Green ambassadors who will continue to spread the message of sustainability in their communities and workplace. However, that is not enough to ensure sustainability.

Measures For Sustainable Success
Singapore Polytechnic (SP) has also put in place a series of measures that ensure our physical management of environmental impact on campus is sustainable.

These include:
Environmental Management Systems (EMS), evaluation of legal compliance and social obligation and any improvements in performance.
Instilling a level of commitment towards green efforts in our management, staff and students through policies and appropriate allocation of resources such as the EMS and outreach programmes
Encouraging voluntary participation among staff and students Green activities.
Motivating students to reach out to their peers via the SP Environment Club.

Our Stakeholders
Through this report, we share with our stakeholders not just our concern for the current degraded state of the environment, but also renewed passion and commitment, fresh ideas and workable plans for the future, within our means. In this process, we hope to address and engage the greater interests of various groups of stakeholders and partners.

At the same time, we constantly identify our customers’ and stakeholders’ expectations through the use of quality management systems and open communication channels such as dialogue, seminars, meetings, induction programmes, executive luncheons and visits.

Messages from our Principals
