Green Agenda

Each IIT aims to establish a Green Office, which would carry out a Green Audit of its curriculum and its institutional management practices, such as energy, water, waste, construction projects, natural resource (forest, water etc.) and biopersity conservation. Green Office will have provision to collect feedback from the community, external agencies and interested parties continuously. A sustained effort is planned to calculate and reduce carbon footprint within the campuses.
