Ecological Management Plans (EMP) are ideally based around two main ideas: natural resource conservation and pollution reduction. This could include pollution of all kinds: liquid effluents, air contamination, solid wastes, and even control of noise and vibration levels. Negative impacts on the social and cultural of any affected human communities are also inherent components of an EMP.

The framework for the Ecological Management Plan for the campuses of the Indian Institutes of Technology is entrenched on the notion that it is a management system that outlines a set of processes and practices to meet the institute’s objectives of sustainable growth. It is also the recognition by IIT that institutional campuses have served as repositories of biological diversity throughout the world and can serve as the last abode (or even a refugium) to some of the threatened plants and animals.
