Already a governing ‘Energy and Environment Policy’ has been formulated in 2019 to set the roadmap and required actions to make the University carbon neutral by 2025.
In addition to the latter, the CEEST has also prepared two new policies namely the sustainable procurement and sustainable investment policies of the university to further align the university towards the SDGs. The scientists are working in priority research areas on Climate change in Energy, especially use of renewable energy applications in Agriculture, Sciences, Engineering, Biotechnology, Food technology and Pharmacy. The main objective of these initiatives is to develop the University as a sustainable education and research hub and township to be model for the higher education Institutions in India.
