MOVING TOWARDS A GREENER TOMORROW

Sustainability at NU

At NU, we believe that Sustainability should be the underlying principle of all the work we do. The guiding influence of sustainability can be seen right through all the activities we undertake - from the design of our campus to the research work conducted by our faculty and everything else in between.

The campus is designed in tandem with all regional environmental issues and in harmony with the five elements of nature. The buildings are aligned with local architectural design parameters to provide efficient wind circulation and maximum relief during summers. Construction of check dams, protection of local species and systematic afforestation of the Aravalli slopes by planting over 1.5 lakh trees has ensured an ecological resurrection of the campus area. Each one of us at NU is passionately engaged in some of the many activities continuously being undertaken leading to a sustainable campus. Some initiatives are given below but the list is by no means complete.

  • Minimising carbon footprint through Earth Air-Tunnels
  • A Walk-only Campus
  • Greening of hills
  • Campus nursery to nurture local varieties of plant species
  • Drip irrigation
  • Tree-farming
  • Water, waste paper and kitchen food waste recycling to produce manure
  • Containing illegal mining of Aravalli hills
  • Checking soil erosion through tree planting
  • Building environmental awareness among students and local community
