The University would like to set up a green campus by minimizing energy consumption and the adverse impact of pollution in the environment. In order to achieve this, it has taken the initiative of planting greenery across the campus and has ensured that battery-drive cars are being used for commuting.
Going forward, several other initiatives have been planned to promote a healthy environment and create a paper-less culture. Energy-efficient electronic equipment and gadgets will be utilised and renewable energy like solar power will be used to meet the daily requirements of the campus. While creating no-vehicle zones even for the battery-driven cars, the University will also encourage its students and faculty members to use bicycles and bikes that run on rechargeable batteries so that the carbon emission is kept at its lowest. Usage of plastic materials will be mostly done away with and water wastage will be controlled through effective waste-water recycling and rainwater harvesting methods.
The University is also looking at using computers and IT resources in a more efficient and environmentally-responsible way. Server virtualisation, usage of LCD monitors and proper disposal of computers, servers and associated subsystems are some of the actions been taken so far in this direction. Ensuring email-based communication and creating digital libraries for a paper-less way of working are some of the other plans in the pipeline.
