This year marks a decade of the UBC Sustainability Initiative. Ten years of connecting, sharing knowledge, and working in partnership to advance sustainability Teaching, Learning, Research, Operations and Infrastructure, and Community Development. But as we face multiple global crises related to health, climate, biodiversity, and social justice, we recognize how much more there is to do.
At UBC we are proud of our achievements, but conscious of the urgent need to accelerate action on critical issues like the climate crisis. Our efforts to map UBC Sustainability activities to the SDGs in this report are an early attempt to identify which goals and targets UBC is actively working towards through our three sustainability pillars, and explore areas where we might collaborate with other organizations to advance shared goals.
