As a Philippine, Jesuit, and Catholic University, the Ateneo de Manila seeks to preserve, extend, and communicate truth and apply it to human development and the preservation of the environment. Specifically, it seeks to
- Mainstream sustainable development, so that it is a major consideration in planning and decision-making in both the University and the larger society;
- Reduce disaster risk due to climate change and other geo-hazards, and in the process, build resilient communities and develop a responsive citizenry; and
- Build a sustainable campus and develop templates, which can be shared with other institutions and communities.
