Ensure availability and sustainable management of water and sanitation for all

Water Stewardship

Water is an essential and finite resource that should be protected. At USJ, we are committed to our Green Campus Environmental Action Plan, which includes rainwater harvesting and recycling systems. The USJ campus is equipped with drinking fountains on each floor, both to promote access to free drinking water and to motivate students and staff to bring their own reusable water bottles, which minimizes plastic consumption and waste.

Water conservation

USJ supports water conservation offcampus and collaborates with the local government and NGOs to ensure clean water resources are maintained. Much of our Institute of Science and Environment’s direct action is focused on mangrove conservation. Among the many ecosystem benefits of mangroves, coastal protection and their ability to filter toxic materials make them crucial battlegrounds in the fight for the conservation of water resources.
