In 1997, UBC became Canada's first university to adopt a Sustainability Policy (Policy #5), and a year later, became Canada's first university to establish a Campus Sutainability Office. Our sustainability policies span sustainable development, energy, grounds, waste and more and provide the basis for sustainable practices on campus. 

Policy #5: Sustainable Development
Policy #6: Environmental Protection Compliance
Policy #9: Hazardous Materials Management
Policy #12: Pest Control
Policy #108: Disposal of Surplus Equipment and Materials
Policy I-B-53: Energy Policy for Classrooms and Offices
