ABSTRACT

 

The environmental quality of a site, greatly affects those that are associated with it. The parameters used to determine any site in terms of how eco safe it is, as per the guidelines provided are energy use, transport and greenhouse gases, water use, wastewater/effluent, Emissions, waste management, pollution prevention/hazardous and potentially hazardous substances, major incident prevention and management, contaminated land/soil and groundwater, pollution, prevention, land use and biodiversity. The industries and private organizations use the Green Audit system to find out their suitability for use or to advise what’s required to make a site suitable for use. Our campus is located in the heart of the city and activities on our campus affect the surrounding localities. So, we undertook the survey of the campus of our college on some of the above parameters, like solid waste management, soil quality, water quality, air quality and noise quality on the site using standard procedures. We also calculated the green ratio of our campus and the results are presented in the paper.
