Campus-wide programs aimed at reducing, reusing, and recycling are contributing to the development of a green code of conduct that includes the following:

Energy Conservation:

By adopting a proactive and forward-thinking approach, the energy conservation strategy seeks to ensure responsible, economical, and energy-efficient operations on campus.

Maintenance of water bodies:

Groundwater is essential to the institution's operation. Bore wells and open wells are present, in that order. The facility provides adequate storage for drinking water, groundwater, and water for cleaning. The facility has a RO purifier that cleans drinking water for use in drinking. In addition a rainwater collection system was installed on our campus.

Landscaping with trees and plants:

Every year, AREC plans a tree-planting initiative on the campus of the college. Students and faculty participate in the Plantation Program. The initiative to plant trees both on and off campus is eagerly started and carried out by students and staff.

Evidence of Success
