Environment is what we live in and breathe in. It is as much of our own creation as it is of nature. When it comes to a trait like being nature friendly, it can only be developed through right examples and demonstration.
Great Lakes Institute of Management is credited as the first educational institution in India to have achieved LEED Platinum certification under LEED India NC version 1.0. Here, going green is practised through the green infrastructure, energy saving campus, green landscaping and environmental friendly waste management techniques.
The Green Committee, the newest of all, has the onus to create awareness, spread environmentally friendly ideas and provide a platform to bring new eco-friendly ideas. The committee consists of four student members and operates under the guidance of Executive Director of the college. The green board consists of one member each from every department of the college. It works together in facilitating adoption of any new green technologies, keeping with the green norms, to be installed in campus.
The committee promotes empirical research idea of students in the area of green and sustainable technology. It aims to provide a "green sense" amongst all the Great Lakes family. The committee takes care of the plantation and landscaping activities of the campus. Green Bulletin, Green'O'Graphy, Green Club, Green Week, Green Ideas exchange forum are some events which are planned for the future.
The student members have been a part of green movement earlier and have continued the effort by creating more supporters. Going green is the way to sustainable future. Together we work towards a more sustainable and eco-friendly world.
