Environmental Management System aims to bring about an attitudinal change in staff and students alike. All the programmes or schemes under this system have been conceptualized keeping in mind the environmental policy, which is accessible and open to public. Under EMS, creating awareness regarding preservation and protection of the environment forms a significant manifestation. Intra and inter school debate, talks on environmental issues, week long programmes like the earth Watch, Greening Delhi and Van Mahotsava, campaigns like anti-polybags and anti-crackers, ban on use of polybags by students and staff, are some of the activities geared towards creating awareness not only amongst staff and students but also amongst public. A paper-recycling unit in school is operating in full swing. Enzyme composting and pressure composting systems have been suspended due to the takeover of land by Delhi Metro Rail Corporation for the construction of underground tunnel and Metro Station.
Landscaping of the school to add beauty and greenery and for Eco-climate control is being continuously done. Besides this, a conscious effort is made to meet all legal requirement laid down by the government to have a clean and green environment. Towards this, the school has been declared as a "No Smoking Zone",and an acoustic enclosure A diesel generator set has been put up. PUCC for the school vehicle is taken quarterly and to treat waste water from RO system and rain water, a tank 10 x 10 x 8 feet has been made and the collected water shall be used to irrigate the field.
