CSE started this practice to showcase successful decentralised management of the solid waste and also to reduce the discharge of the solid waste from its own campus. Solid waste composting is a process to prepare compost from the biodegradable organic material which can be used as soil conditioner or organic fertilizer. Two types of wastes generated in the CSE: From leftover cooked food (collected from canteen) From uncooked raw vegetable waste ( also known as kitchen waste) and dry leaves

India is reaching a critical tipping point in terms of its environmental degradation. Everyday we read and hear about the need to manage our resources well in order to reduce the overall burden on our environment.
The Patrakar Bhawan in Pune played host to a workshop on green architecture and energy efficiency organized by CSE on November 18. The BV Rao hall was packed to capacity and had around 50 participants. Speaking at the event, Anumita Roy Chowdhury, Executive Director, CSE, said, “Our review of green-rated buildings had earlier exposed how several buildings in India are grossly underperforming after being rated green. This is dangerous as our review has exposed several green-rated buildings across the country are underperforming and guzzling more energy.”
