+ Preamble :

Managing sustainability is one of the most challenging and rapidly growing areas in both the public and private sectors. Securing economic development, social equity and justice, and environmental protection is the goal of sustainable development.

Sustainable development encourages us to conserve and enhance our resource base, by gradually changing the ways in which we develop and make use of sound and sustainable technologies.

Rapid industrialization coupled with uncontrolled exploitation of natural resources has affected environment, by ultimate changes in the natural cycle, causing impact and/or effects on air, water, land, flora, fauna, human settlement and health of people. Industrial development, besides economic growth, brings along with it many environmental problems.

Environmental Management is the process of controlling any potential negative impact on the external environment from the human activities in general and industrial activities in particular.

Though industrialization is an integral part of India's progressive economy qualified trained professionals in the field are scarce to find. There is a strong need for professional adept at providing solutions/ expertise in the fields of Sustainable Development And Environment Management in the context of globalization and India’s progressive economy.

The environmental management courses in India are thus designed to fill up these gaps by imparting the knowledge in the field of Sustainable Development and Environment Management to those interested to make their rewarding career in this field.
