Sustainability in Practice

LM Thapar School of Management strongly advocates the idea of Sustainability in Practice. We believe that the idea of sustainable management can inculcate environmental and ethical awareness, values, attitudes, skills and behaviour needed to be the efficient managers in future.

The Pan year Sustainability in Practice (SiP) curriculum is designed to expose students to the opportunities for multilateral and interdisciplinary exploration of real-life situations and developing sustainable solutions relevant to businesses and the society at large. The core aim of the SiP Curriculum is the development of Social entrepreneurial intentions within the students in such a way that they can contribute towards the idea of “Sustainable and Inclusive development of the Society.”

The student driven projects are vital to understand the values associated with team work, co-operation and inclusiveness in our everyday lives as well as the understanding of sustainable business practices.

Some of the projects undertaken under this Initiative.

Drive Less Campaign

As there is no need to mention that the consumption of fossil fuels is increasing day by day. With the increase in population there is a proportional increase in the usage of personal transport. May it be four- wheelers or two- wheelers. It is high time to bring a change in this pattern and that is exactly the mission of this team. Members of this team are engaged in making people aware about the importance of fossil fuels and its harmful effects of over consumption. They participated in a rally ( WALKATHON ) that took place at very popular sukhna lake, Chandigarh. Students of this group are making sure that they can influence maximum number of people in minimum usage of their mode of transport. With this mission they conduct workshops in various other colleges. It is not about the degree or intensity of change that this movement will bring but it is in fact about making people understand that to bring the change they have to be the change, just like our students.
