We maintain a sustenance-oriented lifestyle, with efforts being made at multiple levels. We also instill in our students the practice of preserving the environment, reducing, reusing, recycling waste and other resources at the maximum.
All communication and transactions within the campus are maintained through E-Management systems, from the admission process to the exit procedures. All staffs and students are deputed a personal mail ID under the domain of the college, through which all official activities are managed. Group E-mails and groups on other social media platforms such as whatsapp, facebook and instagram are resorted to for various activities of the college. Notes and other study materials are made available on Google Classrooms and Google Site, the links of which are shared with the students for 24 X 7 access. Use of paper is restricted and submissions such as assignments and tests are also conducted online to the maximum extent possible.
The campus is installed with a set of dustbins at all possible spaces, such as classrooms, food court, common areas, restrooms and gardens, one for bio-degradable wastes and the other for non-degradable wastes. The college has a digestion structure for bio-degradable waste, which converts the waste to manure, used for meeting the nutritional requirements of the gardens. All non-degradable waste are transported to the designated location, from where it is sent for recycling. The institution has a tie-up with ITC group of Companies, Mettupalayam, which extracts the solid waste of the campus and converts it into wealth under the WOW-Wealth Out-of Waste scheme.
The college uses about 80,000 litres of water each day, which is effectively treated by the in-campus sewage treatment plant and recycled for watering the garden. The campus following a ‘Go green’ policy, we use the treated waste water for fulfilling the irrigation requirements of the plants and trees. We also have a medicinal garden in the campus, which is also watered by the treated waste water. Occasional audits and quality checks are made on the water drawn from the STP, so as to ensure that the treated water is fit for watering the plants.
The campus being technology-enabled, we take up the responsibility of disposing the E-Waste through proper channels as proposed by the E-Waste Management Rules 2016. The E-waste is collected and stored at the designated location, which is then transferred to recognized E-Waste traders. It is ensured that no waste is disposed through banned channels such as dumping them in the waste-yard or disposing them along with other non-degradable wastes.
With the added advantage of being located at the foothills of the Western Ghats and having an extensive campus area, the college has a green, serene environment. We had planted 10,000 saplings in the campus during the time of inception, which is maintained with utmost care. All guests visiting the campus plant a sapling, which is maintained as a remembrance of their visit to our institution. The campus holds a picturesque environment, with the vibrant colours of nature decorating the greeneries.
The campus has been installed with solar panels in all possible spaces, converting the renewable energy resource into meeting the energy requirements of the campus. All street-lights in the campus and water-heating systems are powered by solar panels. LED bulbs are installed in the campus to help conserve electricity.
