Mapúa aims to reduce energy utilization through the use of electrical efficient facilities. The campus had gradually replaced its lighting systems and air conditioning units which are more energy efficient.
News brief: Since 2011, without the procurement of equipment with significant energy use, the annual energy consumption of the campus decreased from 3,643,720 kWh to 3,269,200 kWh in 2013.
Mapúa launched an “I GO FOR VALUE” institutional strategic initiative in 2010. The Institute’s Executive Vice President for Academic Affairs, Dr. Bonifacio T. Doma, Jr. embedded the I GO FOR VALUE campaign through academic programs, research, community extension and into various school and departmental functions and operations. The “R” which stands for “research for sustainable development and carbon footprint reduction” drove the Institute to replace the conventional lighting fixtures into energy saving lighting fixtures. Apart from this action, the CDMO installed A/C inverters and replaced the CRT computer monitors into flat LCD. CDMO reported that Mapúa incurred savings from this activity amounting to PhP639,990.24 due to better energy efficiency. This performance received an ‘ECOSWITCH” award.
