Ateneo University is taking a step further in achieving the goal of reducing its carbon footprint as it partners with SolX Technologies Inc., and Shell Energy Philippines.

Ateneo de Manila University’s main campus in Loyola Heights, Quezon City, is making a bold move to renewable energy starting May 26.

This significant shift follows the signing of a Supply Agreement partnership between Ateneo, SolX Technologies Inc., and Shell Energy Philippines.

Ateneo president Fr. Roberto Yap, SJ said this partnership is a crucial part of their strategy to reduce their carbon footprint, according to a Rappler report.

“Utilizing renewable energy resources to power our university is one concrete way we are operationalizing our plan to become a Laudato Si’ University,” he said. The supply agreement, signed on May 23, highlights the university’s dedication to energy conservation and strengthens Ateneo’s commitment to achieving carbon neutrality by 2030. Currently, 13 buildings in Loyola Heights have solar panels, showcasing the school’s ongoing efforts to go green.
