Achievement of Commitment

RSUST is already committed and will continually update our academic curriculum within Faculties and Institutes in line with the demands of sustainable development concepts, principles and practices.
RSUST commits to a transparent documentation of our activities in the area of sustainability education and research projects. Seminars and workshops will be organized and documented on the University web-site and other media sources
RSUST campus greening activities will be intensified. RSUST will intensify efforts towards waste sorting and recycling initiatives across faculties and residential areas on campus. Inter-faculty student greening competitions will also be initiated to improve the carbon sink.

How this will be achieved

RSUST is committed to providing resources for these activities with support from the Government of Rivers State and the Rivers State Sustainable Development Agency (RSSDA). The University will also build on the existing partnership with major Oil and Gas multi-national companies as well as the Niger Delta Development Commission (NDDC).
