What UBC is Doing

UBC has implemented many waste initiatives, from greening our supply chain to reducing paper consumption.

Waste Action Plan

UBC, in collaboration with the University Neighbourhoods Association, has developed and released the comprehensive Zero Waste Action Plan. The plan outlines UBC’s targets to reach new milestones in waste reduction and management, and the actions required to meet those targets.

Waste Reduction

Reducing waste is the most important step in waste management. At UBC, we have many initiatives to green our supply chain, reduce paper consumption and promote reusable containers. These programs minimize the volume of materials arriving on campus, and encourage the UBC community to adopt waste reduction behaviours.
