Warrriors” by integrating our ESG related work into our curriculum. This will help make each Crimson Knight a thought leader in this domain and use our fledgling initiatives that he/she experiences every day they come to the school as springbaords to take the light far and wide.

“Giving is the new Taking”

We are using this mantra as we think off Greening all our school buildings. The efforts start from as small an initiative as changing all light sources to LED so they consume less electricity, to designing buildings with natural light and ventilation; from using plants in the indoor and outdoors and implementing “Organic Farming” as part of curriculum, to utilizing and recycling water; from storm water harvesting to generating our own renewable electricity… the list continues to grow. What is more satisfying is that the net impact of these initiatives is actually accretive to the bottom-line as well… Yes, Black is the color of profits in financial parlance, but the Green only adds to this while laying the seeds of change where it mattes the most, in the young hearts and minds that will inherit the world from us. Our mission is to make our schools Net Zero… meaning they will not take water, food & electricity from the grid but add to it and that too, by using sustainable and renewable sources.

Our Buses as Change Agents

School buses with their quintessential yellow are the major source of red when it comes to environment. The fossil fuel guzzling fleet often is taken as a necessary evil and forgotten. We are on a mission… to move away from fossil fuels for our buses and move to “Electric”. In addition we will equip all our schools with charging stations not just for our fleet but for community use as well and the icing on the cake, “Our electricity will come from our own solar rooftops and not the grid”

From the big picture to the small consumable

I have often seen environmentally friendly packages arriving nicely packed in single use plastics…the irony is not lost on us. While we endeavor to make our buildings green, and focus on conserving or generating our own resources… we continue to keep our focus on those consumables that our students use as well. Right from the uniforms to the shoes, from water bottles to the bags, from the books to the stationery… we will be constantly on the look out for environmentally sustainable materials and innovative products while working frugally to ensure re-usability to the largest extent possible.We are “All In” and we will paint the town “GREEN”
