iit bombay

IIT-Bombay is formulating a comprehensive sustainability policy aimed at monitoring and reducing the campus’s carbon footprint. The policy will outline measures for individual departments to contribute to sustainability efforts.

Newly appointed director Shireesh Kedare, formerly of the department of energy sciences, revealed the institute’s plans during a media interaction on Friday. Kedare assumed the directorship on May 6, succeeding Prof. Subhasis Chaudhuri.

The institute will incorporate extensive data collected for various rankings into the development of the policy. Additionally, a dean for sustainability has been appointed to oversee these initiatives.

In a related move, IIT-Bombay recently established the Green Energy and Sustainable Hub with funding from a US-based alumnus. The hub will coordinate and support research in green energy, climate change, and sustainability across the institute’s departments and industry collaborations.
