De La Salle University-Dasmariñas has marked another achievement in terms of advancing sustainable initiatives in the academe as the University became the first Philippine school accepted as a member of the International Sustainable Campus Network.
The ISCN is a network that provides a global forum to support leading colleges, universities, and corporate campuses in the exchange of information, ideas, and best practices for achieving sustainable campus operations and integrating sustainability in research and teaching.
Marlon Pareja, Director of the Environmental Resource Management Center and the Sustainable DLSU-D drive, sees the recognition as an honor and a sign that the University is moving in the right direction in terms of implementing green solutions in a world class standard.
“Our challenge now is to make sure that aside from academic standards, our sustainable practices should be at par with global standards,” he says.
