The University will act in accordance with environmental legislation and officially approved codes of practice in the country, and will make sincere efforts to minimise its adverse environmental impact and maximise the effective use of its resources by framing an Environmental Plan which sets out a range of objectives and targets related to its significant environmental impacts. It will minimise risks and impacts through the development of robust and documented systems to implement, measure, monitor, and disseminate excellent environmental performance both within its operations and to the broader community catering the needs of students throughout the state of West Bengal.
