The students have been asked to design their innovation in such a way that it goes green right from the stage of sourcing for material to delivering finished products and services to end users, a statement said on Wednesday.
"In Indian context our students have to focus on three areas while designing new technology, usage of renewable energy, going for environment friendly materials and ensuring the whole process should have minimum or no carbon footprint," said Bhaskar Bhowmick of Rajendra Mishra School of Engineering Entrepreneurship, IIT Kharagpur.
"Our overall objective is to develop a perspective on the role of Green Entrepreneurship in transforming current production and consumption systems for achieving the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) especially developing responsible consumption and production habit among our innovators," Bhowmick added.
And in order to ensure that the students start thinking green, they were asked to design a green ambulance ensuring minimum carbon footprint.
