Carbon-Neutral Campus

XLRI plans to become a carbon-neutral campus by 2020. It has undertaken several environment-friendly initiatives such as setting up a biogas plant, providing bicycles for students to commute within campus and installing solar panels on rooftops of a number of buildings on the premises.

Fr Nelson D'Silva, Associate Dean - Student Affairs & Administration and a faculty at XLRI, who is also looking after XLRI's green initiatives said, "We are also replacing mercury vapour lamps on campus with LED ones. In the past year, XLRI installed infrared sensors in its washrooms to stop unnecessary power consumption when they are empty. Some washrooms will now have microwave sensors as infrared ones don't respond in high temperature. A plan to install such sensors and LED bulbs in the library is also in the pipeline," he said.
