Climate & Energy

In 2007, we met our Kyoto targets for academic buildings—five years early and in spite of growing our building floor space by 35 per cent and enrolment by 48 per cent. In 2010, our Climate Action Plan committed us to bold greenhouse gas (GHG) emission reduction targets—33 per cent by 2015, 67 per cent by 2020, and 100 per cent by 2050, compared to 2007 levels. We’re now investing in large-scale energy retrofits, alternative energy systems, and engagement strategies to meet these ambitious energy and climate goals.
