Elion – Greening the Hills and Elevating Excellence at a Jawlamukh College with a Combined NAAC Audit


Elion Technologies & Consulting Pvt. Ltd is proud to showcase its commitment to nurturing sustainable campuses and institutional excellence through a recent project at a leading college in Jawlamukh, Himachal Pradesh. This case study highlights the effectiveness of a combined Green, Energy, and Environment Audit in optimizing resource utilization, minimizing environmental impact, and ultimately propelling the college towards achieving prestigious NAAC accreditation.

Project Overview:

Our client, a renowned college nestled amidst the picturesque hills of Jawlamukh, recognized the crucial role of environmental responsibility and efficient resource management in both sustaining their beautiful campus and achieving the coveted NAAC accreditation. They engaged Elion Technologies to conduct a comprehensive audit encompassing green practices, energy consumption, and environmental compliance, seeking to pave the way for a sustainable and accredited future.

Environment Audit


Combined Audit Approach:

  • We meticulously assessed the entire college campus, integrating the methodologies of three distinct audits:
    • Green Audit: Evaluating water and waste management practices, landscaping, green initiatives, and sustainable procurement policies.
    • Energy Audit: Monitoring and analyzing energy consumption patterns across buildings and facilities, identifying inefficiencies and savings opportunities.
    • Environment Audit: Assuring compliance with relevant environmental regulations pertaining to air and water pollution, waste disposal, and hazardous materials management.

Synergistic Insights:

By analyzing data from all three audits simultaneously, we generated a holistic understanding of the college’s environmental footprint, resource utilization, and compliance with NAAC environmental criteria. This allowed us to recommend solutions that addressed sustainability and accreditation requirements through a unified lens.

Findings and Recommendations:

Green Audit:

  • Identified opportunities for improved water conservation through rainwater harvesting and leak detection.
  • Suggested expanding recycling programs and implementing composting initiatives.
  • Highlighted inefficiencies in waste management practices and proposed sustainable solutions.
  • Recommended incorporating native flora and fauna-friendly landscaping practices.

Energy Audit:

  • Uncovered outdated equipment and inefficient lighting systems as significant energy consumers.
  • Proposed upgrades to LED lighting, smart controls, and automation systems.
  • Suggested exploring renewable energy options like solar power for additional cost savings and environmental benefits.

Environment Audit:

  • Identified minor non-compliance issues with waste disposal procedures and recommended corrective actions.
  • Suggested updates to environmental management systems and emergency response protocols.

NAAC Accreditation Guidance:

  • Compiled a comprehensive report addressing all relevant NAAC environmental criteria and sustainability practices.
  • Provided strategic recommendations to strengthen the college’s environmental commitment and showcase its alignment with NAAC guidelines.


By diligently implementing our recommendations, the Jawlamukh college achieved remarkable results:

  • Reduced environmental impact: Improved resource management, waste reduction, and sustainable practices minimized the college’s environmental footprint.
  • Significant energy savings: Reduced energy consumption through optimized systems and efficient practices led to substantial cost reductions and lowered environmental impact.
  • Enhanced NAAC accreditation potential: Implementing comprehensive measures positioned the college as a leader in sustainable practices, strengthening their application for NAAC accreditation.
  • Boosted institutional reputation: Demonstrating a commitment to environmental responsibility and sustainable practices enhanced the college’s reputation within the community and attracted prospective students and faculty.
