Campus Initiatives

The University of Alberta is committed to a continuous effort to instill sustainability into the many aspects of university life. Driven by our Sustainability Commitment and Guiding Principles, we take an integrated approach to managing campus resources in harmony with ecological, social and economic systems. 

We’re very excited to share the many ways our members are conserving resources, improving practices and promoting a culture of sustainability. Whether we are faculty or student, partners or suppliers, staff or contractor, we are all invested in building a sustainable future, today.
