ITS in its Smart Eco Campus implementation also keeps tabs on Greenhouse Gas (GHG) emission implications by initiating Greenhouse Gas Emission Reduction Program. This program consists of four scopes, covering from combustion to waste matters. Moreover, not only greenhouses gas emissions that are taken into account, but ITS also pays attention to the number of carbon footprints omitted.
ITS as a Smart Eco Campus commences a green building campaign, and it is implemented in each of ITS’ building development and renovation. Such campaign will be focusing on the following elements: natural lighting, natural ventilation, building’s heat load reduction, vertical garden, water efficiency, solar cell installation as an ITS renewable energy, and construction of buildings above ground that provide space for rainwater. Furthermore, this campaign is also subject to the Circular Letter of ITS Rector, referring to Sustainable and Environmental Friendly Campus in ITS.
ITS as a Smart Eco Campus initiates a program focusing on reducing the usage of private transportation. Such programs encourage all the staff, lecturers, and students to ride a bike or walk instead of using electrical vehicles inside the campus area. This encouragement is also supported by the partnership between ITS and the Local Government of Surabaya regarding the route of Suroboyo Bus in which ITS becomes a part of the route. Furthermore, not only bus, but ITS also provides a free bike that is available to be rented with particular terms and conditions. This practice represents ITS readiness to strive timelessly towards vehicle emissions in the campus areas.
