2021 Social Responsibility and Sustainability Report
The year 2022 marks the third year of NTU’s “Social Responsibility and Sustainability Report.” Since the announcement of our carbon neutrality goals in 2020, we have proactively developed a carbon neutrality pathway as well as specific measures for the NTU campus to become carbon neutral, where the expertise of the teachers and students is combined with an interdisciplinary and systematic perspective to create a sustainable campus. Our efforts are further extended to the communities locally and internationally to fulfill our social responsibility as a higher education institution.
This year, the theme of our USR Report is “Building Campus Sustainability and Expanding Social Influence,” and the report is a thorough review of NTU’s actions and results in teaching, research, and environmental governance among other efforts that have benefited the people and the country. In line with the UN’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), this report presents NTU’s positive influence and specific contributions by responding to the 169 targets under the UN SDGs.
Sustainable development is a long-term mission, towards which NTU will continue to make efforts, review the results regularly, and progress persistently. We are confident that NTU will help make a difference for the sustainability of the local and international communities.
