Nurturing a Culture of Sustainability

Sustainability , by the very means of its definition, is an important factor to evaluate how we put technology and science in use to save and preserve our environment and climate for the future generations. Being one of the nation’s top universities, it is our responsibility to promote sustainability in our country, beginning with our campuses.

Before we plan and initiate actions to make the university more efficient and sustainable, it is essential to have a well-crafted medium through which we could brodcast our current progress and also share our vision and goals to the rest of the world. Hence, an appropriate website for the university’s sustainability is a need of the hour.
