- Fine tune standards of practices that will have long-term solutions to problems of the plant and require others dealing with DLSL to follow suit.
- Adopt international standards on sustainability – green building index, social responsibility index
- Target by 2022 that 40% of DLSL power requirements come from renewables
- By 2030, target for DLSL is off the grid, self sustaining
