The relationship between Nizam’s College and nature is a long and enduring one. The buildings of this educational institutions stand in the middle of a lush green campus, in the heart of the city of Hyderabad. Since its inception, the college has always had sustainable initiatives at the core of its activities. A huge area is left in its natural form and acts as a natural habitat for biodiversity and a large variety of species of grasses, herbs, shrubs and trees.

Scope of the Policy

The co-curricular and extracurricular activities under the policies of  Green Policy, Energy, and Waste Management  Policies inspire students to take the initiative in bringing about positive change. Under these initiatives, all administrative and infrastructure functions must be thoroughly reviewed from the perspectives of sustainability, energy efficiency, and the environment.

The focus areas of Green policy are:

  • Organizing frequent cleanliness drives to raise public awareness of hygiene and cleanliness among students and staff. The intention is to inspire them to make a proactive contribution.

  • There will be competitions for slogans and posters, essay writing, spoken word poetry, speeches, and skits about "Swachh Bharat."

Landscaping Initiatives

Similar to its buildings, a college's campus landscape can be thought of as the tangible representation of its core principles. It is an essential component of campus life, offering areas for learning, recreation, outdoor activities, leisure, and the appreciation of art. In addition to controlling runoff and assisting in groundwater recharge, green campus landscapes also purify and cool campus air. The dedication of the campus community to sustainability is reflected in the landscape.

The college commits to enriching this healthy habitat and maintaining the symbiotic relation of the institution with nature by

  • Organizing annual tree plantation drives
  • Encouraging student societies to hold tree planting events.

Clean Air Initiatives

Staff and students are encouraged to take public transportation. Carpooling to college is something we strongly recommend because it reduces air pollution and improves social interaction. To deter the use of private vehicles, there are restrictions on the entry of automobiles onto campus.

Smoking free Campus

As per the guidelines set forth by the National Tobacco Control Programme (NTCP) 2007-2008, smoking and the use of other tobacco products are strictly forbidden at the college. In an effort to promote a tobacco-free environment, Smoking and tobacco use are strictly forbidden on and around campus as a first step in this direction. The college's antismoking committee makes sure that the antismoking rule is followed.

Awareness Initiatives

In order for every member of the campus community to respect the goals of the policy and support its execution, outreach and education are crucial. For this reason, Nizam college encourages and supports awareness-raising efforts as well as conferences, seminars, workshops, and other interactive events that help to ensure that the Green Campus, Energy, and Environment policies are implemented effectively.

Environment-centric Student Societies and Department Activities

The college encourages all departments to plan events, competitions, and training sessions that will result in grassroots, positive environmental changes, as well as specific student societies like Green Society, NSS, NCC, and others. In order to shape its students into engaged participants in environmental preservation and protection, the college provides departments and student societies with support.

As a result of institutional shifts toward sustainability and environmentally friendly practices, an increasing number of students are joining Green Society. The institution will have a larger platform to promote and raise awareness of its environmental values if it becomes a mandatory society. The implementation of mandatory societies entails a certain amount of work and dedication, which will facilitate the exponential growth of green initiatives and practices as part of this policy.
