Shaheed Sukhdev College of Business Studies promotes green practices in and around the college premises to ensure minimal carbon footprints. The college has taken a special initiative to instill awareness of environmental responsibility among students and staff.
In keeping with the tradition of intellectual excellence, the College has outlined the following policies and practices to improve its environmental performance.
Awareness creations about environmental issues among students and employees including climate change. To ensure this the student society of the college organizes webinars, hands-on workshops, quizzes, and debates and would continue to do so in the future.
Reduce and reuse the waste within the college premises by collecting, reducing, reusing, recycling, and appropriate disposal of waste.
Solid Waste Management
The college will implement a variety of initiatives to reduce trash generation and management, including the following:
Liquid Waste Management
Liquid Waste Management is a term that refers to the management of liquid waste. The college will take necessary steps to ensure:
– Continued hiring of a caretaker to take quick action to eliminate any water leaks from taps, pipes, tanks, and toilet flushes, among other things.
-The college also saves a lot of energy by rainwater harvesting and using the harvested water in flushes.
Electronic waste (e-waste), that is, waste arising from end-of-life electronic products such as computers and mobile phones, is one of the fastest-growing waste streams in the world today. The growing problem of e-waste calls for greater emphasis on recycling e-waste and better e-waste management.
The students’ societies are planning to install e-waste collection bins at various locations across Delhi and channel the collected e-waste to eco-friendly formal recyclers from time to time during the entire year. Green Campus: The faculty, staff, and students must contribute collectively to develop an eco-friendly sustainable campus and disseminate the concept of eco-friendly culture to the nearby community and wherever possible.
In our college sensor-based, energy conservation is achieved by sensor-based corridor lights.
It works on the principle that when the detector senses an object moving across its field of view — especially warmer objects such as people, animals, and cars — it electronically turns on the lights.
Also, we have these sensor-based lights in our corridors where lights automatically switch on/off when it detects any movement. Through this automation, lights get on when somebody enters the classroom/corridor and similarly get switched off when people leave the premises, which ultimately results in energy conservation. In the coming years, we will extend this to the street lights and the lights in the classrooms as well.
Plantation and Cleanliness Drives:
Trees are planted regularly at the college, and new locations are found each year. For plantations that are suited, priority is given to rapidly growing indigenous kinds, preserving the natural environment, and attaining carbon neutrality.
The various societies in the college also organize cleanliness drives from time to time to ensure that the campus is clean and waste is minimized.
