The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) Agenda of the United Nations (UN) adopted by world leaders in 2015 include poverty eradication, climate change mitigation and universal access to education. The UN 2030 Agenda acknowledges Quality Education (SDG#4) as a means for achieving the remaining SDGs, with sustainability as a goal for Quality Education. This paper aimed to establish the application of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in achieving the SDGs which were declared by the United Nations in 2015 as binding for all nations of our planet addressing both developing and developed countries. ICT plays a significant role if the SDGs should be achieved as projected in 2030. The impact of ICT on sustainability is two-fold. On the one hand there might be negative effects on sustainability such as the generation of electronic waste. However, ICT is definitely an enabler to more efficient resource usage, education and business operations which is critical success factor for achieving the SDGs. Specifically, this project established a portal system that determines the status of quality education in Isabela State University – Main campus, as its pilot implementation site, using the instrument indicated in the SDG 4 in the Times Higher Education Impact Rankings methodology. The portal is used to gather data for the last 3 years about Research on early years and lifelong learning education, Proportion of graduates with teaching qualifications, Lifelong learning measures and Proportion of first-generation students. These are the key performance indicators for the University to meet the standard of quality education that was based on the instrument for Sustainable Development Goal 4 - Quality Education.
