Anna University: Print Project Report on two sides, save paper

      Chennai, United States

With more than 600 affiliated colleges, the Anna University in Tamilnadu enrolls tens of thousands of students every year. If the University mandates double side printing of all reports, the amount of paper consumed could be reduced by 50%

Through its various affiliated colleges, the Anna University in Tamil Nadu has a sanctioned intake of 4,65,754 students.  Number of approved intakes for the year 2011-12 is 465754, which includes UG,PG and diploma students. Every student makes a number of reports a part of their curriculum.    

For instance, each student submits a project report to the University at the end of their course.  A 100 page report for their final year project thesis, which they have to make multiple copies, would translate into several hundred tonnes of paper and currently most of them print it on single side.

If the University makes it mandatory to use both the sides of the paper for these reports, this will directly translate into 50% reduction of the paper used and a huge saving of resources in the form of trees, water and energy.

If this rule is rolled out this will save a lot of paper and in-turn trees and energy that goes into the making of paper, taking a green step and prove their responsibility towards environment.

Through this petition we ask the Vice-Chancellor of Anna University to issue a notification to all the affiliated colleges, asking them to print project reports and thesis in both the sides of the paper.
