Sustainability on Campus

Rishihood is finding ways to operate more sustainably through a range of practical initiatives. Currently, we are on the path to developing a University-wide sustainability strategy that will help us prioritise where we can make the biggest impact.

Rishihood University’s commitment to sustainability extends to our people, our planet, prosperity, and educational purposes. Our commitments require innovation and action from each member of the community. Together we can invent and demonstrate solutions using our campus as a living laboratory for a low-carbon future and more sustainable communities.

Water

Our eco-friendly campus is prepared for rainwater harvesting. 14 pits, 6 meters deep are spread over 25-acre campus, to collect rainwater for reuse.

Energy

Air conditioning at Campus is designed at 26 degrees Celsius with fans to reduce the energy requirements. Each degree increase in the AC temperature can save about 3-5% electricity and hence save on power consumption.

Food

We grow organic food and medicinal plants on campus. This not only caters to the healthy dining needs of the Rishihood community but also becomes a joyful experience for everyone on campus.
