What is Sunway Doing



Environmental Sustainability Policy

Recycle Corners

Recycle Corners can be found across campus with cloth bins, shoe bins and eWaste bins as well as recyling bins on every floor in the University building.

The Last Straw Campaign

Initiated in 2019, the Last Straw Campaign educated students on the environmental impact of single-use plastic and how to take small steps to tackle plastic waste issues. The pilot initiative introduces the refilling stations on campus to eliminate the use or purchase of plastic water bottles on campus. an initiative that eliminates single-use plastic on campus and encourages a no single-use plastic lifestyle. The campaign has continued throughout the years by extending the no single-use plastic practice to all types of cutlery on campus supplied by vendors. This campaign will continue to advance and encourage responsible use of plastic by everyone who is apart of our campus community.
