Institutional Values and Social Responsibilities

The institution makes effort for energy conservation by reducing the consumption of energy and using less of an energy service. Energy conservation is a practice of reducing the quantity of energy use. It may be attained through efficient energy use or by reducing the consumption of energy services.

It is one of the easiest processes to help the globe by means of pollution in addition to make use of natural energy. Conservation of energy has been done by various methods. Planting trees all around the campus so that there is a less usage of air conditioners. Insulating a building allows it to use less heating and cooling energy to achieve and maintain a thermal comfort.

Installing light emitting diode bulbs, fluorescent lighting or natural skylight windows reduces the amount of energy required to attain the same level of illumination compared to using traditional incandescent light bulbs.

Designing features of the building that maximizes the use of natural light. Adding blinds or other window fixtures in classrooms can allow teachers to reduce glare while trading electrical light for natural sunlight.

Natural sunlight will create a more relaxed learning environment compared to the harsh overhead lights that are normally in classrooms. Switching over to LED’s or CFL’s can save lot of energy.

CFL’s last longer than standard incandescent bulbs and cost of fraction of the price to run. Modern LED bulbs can offer a powerful option for lighting at a fraction of the electrical cost. Investing in energy saving power strips by keeping classroom computers and other devices plugged into power strips to help mitigate their standby power usage.

Encouraging students to do their part by creating a point system for recyclers or assigning extra credit projects focused on recycling and environmental impact. Using sensors for turning lights on or off in a room.

Alternative sources of energy – Solar energy- This is the most commonly used source of alternative energy by the institution. It is completely renewable and the cost expended on installation can be made back through energy bill savings.

 Waste management

Waste management is carried out at the institute in compliance with local and state guidelines. The culture of following waste management practices goes a long way in ensuring that environment is preserved, recycling is carried out effectively. The procedures, howsoever simple they may be require continuous effort, education and training of all involved. Institute carries out waste management in following ways: Segregation of waste into five categories - viz. General, Food, Plastic, E-waste & Biohazardous. Food waste is further used in the compost pit for use in soil enrichment. Staff is given regular training regarding benefits of waste management. Monitoring is carried out periodically by the head of the institution.

 Rain water harvesting

Grizzly college of Education has initiated Rainwater harvesting system as a process or technology used to conserve Rainwater by collecting, storing, conveying and purifying of Rainwater that runs off from rooftops, parks, open grounds, etc. for later use.

 

 

 Green Initiates

Grizzly College of Education is located in an area where green cover is easily maintainable. Several varieties of trees, plants, etc. have been planted and continuously maintained. These help in keeping campus fresh as well as healthy and a pleasing appearance. Gardeners are employed to maintain green cover. No pesticides are used. Students and staff are motivated to give suggestion for improving green cover.
