Universiti Malaya Eco-Campus Blueprint (UMECB) is a guideline that gives emphasis to eight (8) Core Areas of University of Malaya (CAUM), namely (1) Landscape and Biodiversity Management, (2) Waste Management, (3) Water Management, (4) Energy Management, (5) Transportation System Management, (6) Green Procurement, (7) Education Management - Environment and Climate Change, and (8) Change Management in Governance, Participation, and Communication. All eight core areas are identified as a field that requires commitment and a holistic approach cutting across disciplinary, expertise, and responsibility center (RC) which involves top management of UM, academic and non-academic staff as well as students. UMECB sought to be an aspiration in a form of Universiti Malaya's commitment as one community working synergically toward a more sustainable campus in the future.
All action plans are displayed in short-term and long-term plans to give the room for opportunity to the campus community to take proactive measures, in-stages, as a show of support towards promoting the Universiti Malaya as one of the prominent Eco-Campus models at the local, regional, and international level in tandem with UM status as a premier and world-leading university.
