|Suggested Directives for MIT:
1. In recognition that problems affecting the global environment are serious matters for all humankind, harmony with the environment will be a top priority at MIT.
2. By establishing a structure for the promotion of environmental preservation, enacting regulations relating to the environment, setting environmental impact reduction targets, and similar measures, faculty, officers and students in charge of environmental promotion will promote environmental preservation activities. Moreover, environmental audits will be used to confirm the efficacy of activities and our efforts towards continued improvement.
3. Through a concise understanding of how best to resolve environmental problems facing the world, MIT will work to make contributions to society through the development of highly reliable technologies and projects that meet those needs.
4. MIT gives due consideration to reducing the environmental effects a project will have throughout its entire life cycle, from the R&D and design stages, through to production, logistics, use, and disposal.
5. MIT will investigate and examine the effect of its institutional operations on the environment and seek to introduce new technologies and materials with superior functionality regarding environmental safety, energy conservation and resource conservation.
6. In addition to observing international, national and local regulations with regard to the environment, MIT will develop its own standards where necessary to maintain environmental conservation.
7. In addition to working towards enhancing the environmental awareness of its students and employees, MIT will focus its activities on society at large, contributing to that society through environmental preservation activities carried out from a broad perspective. Should an environmental problem arise as a result of MIT activities, MIT will take appropriate steps to minimize the impact on the environment.
