Abstract: NTU aspires to be one of the world’s top engineering and science centres and a leader in areas such as clean technology and environmental sustainability. Constructing energy efficient buildings on its campus was the perfect opportunity for the university to galvanise behind a more visionary effort, the EcoCampus Initiative. In partnership with Singapore’s Economic Development Board (EDB) and JTC Corporation, the EcoCampus initiative will transform NTU’s 200-hectare campus into a super sustainability test bed involving all stake holders: students, researchers, planners, builders, Singapore’s relevant agencies and the private sector. The presentation will summarize the thought process, the challenges in implementation, the current state and goals for the future.
