DAVIM Centre for Environment

The setting up of the DAVIM Centre for Environment 2008 was an initiative towards addressing the environmental crisis threatening the human beings and various other species on this planet
Objective-Confronting threatening environmental issues is the key agenda of all aspects of activities carried out by this center. All the faculty members and students are encouraged to have sincere concern for the environment they are in and what the possible implications of their actions may have on it.
DAVIM Centre for Environment accepts its obligation to comply with all relevant legislation and minimize the impact of adverse human activities upon the environment. In recognition of this, the centre has begun to implement an environmental system which focuses on:
  • Education about environmental issues
  • Minimizing waste/ utilizing waste productively
  • Monitoring of Energy Consumption
  • Steadfast commitment for preventing pollution
  • Continuous Tree Plantation Activities

  • Some of the routine activities of the centre are-Sensitization Seminars, Tree Plantation Drives, Sapling Distribution, Commemoration of Earth Day, Ozone day, Eco- Friendly drive, Nukkad Nataks to create awareness for environment protection etc.

    Tree Plantation

    Planting a tree is a lifetime investment. How well this investment grows depends on the type of tree selected and the planting location, the care provided during planting and after planting. A full size tree provides environmental, economic, and social benefits throughout its life. Ideally, trees are planted during the rainy season as the weather conditions are cool and allow plants to establish roots in the new location without difficulty.
    Tree plantation is good for the environment. Everybody knows that trees are the source of oxygen which the survival of living beings is not possible on earth. Trees also absorb various harmful gases including sulfur dioxide and carbon monoxide and also filter injurious pollutants from the atmosphere thereby providing us fresher and cleaner air to breath.
    The rising amount of air pollution caused by the smoke emitted by vehicles and factories can be controlled only if we plant maximum number of trees.
    DAVIM has been an active participant in plantation drives of MCF. Keeping the movement on, we planted trees of fruit bearing plants and shade giving trees in association with Forest department and MCF, Faridabad in nearby places such as NIT 3, Central line, RWA parks. We also distributed saplings amongst our staff members.

    Green Souvenir

    Celebrations, Commemorations, seminars, programmes and other occasions are incomplete without exchanging gifts and souvenirs which are meant to be cherished and remembered, thereby, creating long-lasting impressions. Most gifts have a shelf life ranging from 2 days to 2 months, i.e., flower bouquets, chocolates etc. All these gifts are lifeless and do not last for very long. We at DAVIM strive to transform the gifting culture to greener, happier and healthier idea. By gifting green souvenirs we are able to build a good reputation and fulfill our social responsibility too.

The Club consists of team of student volunteers who work for the society to combat hunger, improve health and sanitation, provide education and job training, promote peace, and eradicate polio under the motto of Faridabad Rotary Club “Service Above Self “.
