Activities on climate actions
Shoolini University is actively committed to sustainable development, as demonstrated by its wide-ranging efforts to address environmental, economic, and social challenges. While I don't have specific information about a formal Climate Action Plan, the university has taken significant steps to combat climate change and promote sustainability. These efforts include using renewable energy sources, waste management, water conservation, and eco-friendly campus initiatives. Shoolini University's dedication to sustainability and its recognition in global rankings for Sustainable Development Goals underline its commitment to environmental responsibility.
The global thrust for climate change mitigation calls for all organizations and higher education institutions to take immediate measures to lower their carbon footprint. Shoolini University has established a Centre of Excellence in Energy Science & Technology (CEEST) in 2019 which is led by Prof. Shyam Singh Chandel who comes under the global top 2% scientists according to research conducted by Stanford University.
