In support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals, UTP has embarked on the UTP ECO PROJECT, a student led endeavor, supported by the Institute of Self-Sustainable Building. The UTP ECO PROJECT uses a whole institution approach, involving all stakeholders of the university, to promote and adopt sustainable development initiatives and a greener lifestyle on campus. A key initiative under the UTP ECO PROJECT will be the move to obtain international green flag certification for UTP, under the Foundation for Environmental Education Eco-Campus Programme.

The UTP ECO PROJECT student committee is made up of students from the Eco Campus Student Work Group (ECSWG), Go Green Movement (GGM), Innovation and Design Club (IDEC) and AiCHE UTP Student Chapter.
