SUSTAINABILITY;

In definition, it is the use of the current resources effectively and efficiently without taking away the ability for the future generations to do the same.  For humans, sustainability is the potential for long-term maintenance of well being, which has environmental, economic, and social dimensions.

Moving towards sustainability is  a social challenge that entails international and national law, urban planning and transport, local and individual lifestyles and ethical consumerism.

We at Newton College Group would take on any challenge and make every effort in becoming as sustainable as possible. This not only ensures our well being but also the well being of our children and their children. 

By making applicants' trips and/or education as effective and as efficient as possible we can contribute towards environmental sustainability by reducing the transportation, paper consumption, fuel consumption, resource consumption, and time consumption of thousands of individuals. This may not seem like a huge and direct contribution but in fact when added up, the amount of reduction in carbon emission as a result of smart planning, is staggering. 

We have allocated plenty of resources to reduce the amount of paper use, postage, waste, and transportation at our offices and take advantage of the latest technologies to ensure that we are taking a small but effective step towards what we would like to refer to as a greener future. We wish to set an example in this matter and encourage all to take this matter seriously. 

The following videos are meant to help you understand the implications of our every action whether small or great, in our future and in the next generation's well being.
