The Sustainability Office is at the heart of all things green at Laurier.
Since opening in 2010, the office has led the effort to lower Laurier’s overall greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 15 per cent by 2016. Laurier also participates in the Sustainable Waterloo Region’s Regional Carbon Initiative program – an organization started by two Laurier alumni.
Laurier is achieving its target and has done so through integrated initiatives within all areas of operations, education and community partnerships. From energy management and climate action to innovative food systems projects, the Sustainability Office works to improve the sustainability of the university, while also taking into account its role within the local and global system.
Recently, Laurier was recognized as a top performer for its sustainability coordinating and planning with a silver rating in the 2015 Sustainable Campus Index and Rising Star recognition.
