Commitment to sustainability

Shoolini University is committed towards Net Zero Emissions by 2025 implementing Net Zero Emissions Strategies in Higher Education Institutions.

Implementing net zero emissions strategies in higher education institutions requires a comprehensive approach that goes beyond simply reducing operational emissions. Universities have the unique opportunity to leverage their intellectual capital to scale research on net zero solutions, while also addressing their own emissions from campus operations. Furthermore, educating individuals and businesses about the need for net zero initiatives is a significant tool that universities can utilize to drive widespread adoption of sustainable practices. By setting examples for how net zero can be achieved in the education sector, universities can inspire other institutions to follow suit and contribute to the global effort to combat climate change.

Shoolini University has research centres that particularly works on sustainability and climate action.
