formulated and gained approval for a comprehensive sustainability policy. This
policy, endorsed by the Dean's Council, serves as a structured framework for

the university has integrated sustainability principles into its strategies,

Environmental Sustainability Policy signifies JUST's commitment to responsible
stewardship of the environment. It serves as a roadmap for infusing
sustainability across all university operations. The policy addresses various
aspects of sustainability, such as land resources, research, teaching,
procurement, energy, waste, water management, and more, with the year 2019 as a
benchmark. Clear goals, implementation strategies, and key performance
indicators are outlined for each area.
Successful implementation requires the
collective efforts of the university's administration, faculty, staff, and
