Our environment consists of everything about us - the atmosphere, land and water.

Environmental laws are applied to protect the environment from being mercilessly polluted and degraded. Sources of pollution are controlled in such a way that development and its sustenance are not adversely affected. Environmental management is becoming more and more challenging and difficult, due to ever-increasing demands for electricity and other forms of energy. Use of energy efficient methods/technology and equipments is helpful in controlling pollution. In addition public awareness is also essential. This objective is achievable with the help of proper funding and public support.
