As UBC continues to grow rapidly, a significant number of new buildings and existing building retrofits are required over the next 20 years. The design and sustainability of these buildings are integral in ensuring the wellbeing of students, faculty, staff and residents.

Approved on September 27, 2018, The Green Building Action Plan responds to this need. The plan was developed through engagement with over 100 UBC students, faculty, staff, residents and green building experts to develop ideas and aspirations for green building practices. The GBAP consists of ambitious goals, targets and actions that represent eight interrelated areas: energy, water, materials and resources, biodiversity, health and wellbeing, quality, climate adaptation, and place and experience.
