There are more sustainable campuses in Asia aiming not only at mitigating carbon footprints, but also educating the students about eco-preservation, biodiversity, etc. Implementing green action in campus does not always require sophisticated/integrated building automation system – there are some applicable eco-friendly methods to increase energy efficiency i.e. through natural lighting and air conditioning/circulation system.
