What do we seek to achieve?

We believe that we are a product of our environment, we have a duty to sustain and preserve it and make it work in our favour. Our goal in ISD is to continuously work toward a healthy environment. 

Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is energy that is collected from renewable resources that are naturally replenished on a human timescale. It includes sources like sunlight, wind, rain, tides, waves, and geothermal heat. 

Green Materials

Green materials are materials that are local and renewable. These materials are non-toxic, they improve occupancy health, lower cost, conserve energy, water use, and waste products. 

Sustainable Agriculture

Sustainable agriculture consists of  farming methods that allow the production of crops or livestock without damage to human or natural systems.It maintains environmental soundness. 

Waste to Energy

It is the conversion of non-recyclable waste materials into usable heat, electricity, or fuel through a variety of processes, including combustion, gasification, pyrolization, anaerobic digestion and landfill gas recovery.
