Sustainability

Waterloo is committed to leaving a legacy of sustainability for generations to come.

As the University of Waterloo establishes campuses and partnerships around the world, sustainable development means pursuing strategies and activities that meet the needs of students, employees, and communities. Waterloo’s sustainability efforts enhance both the independent and the integrated relationships of the environment, society and the economy today and into the future.

As a major employer in Waterloo Region, we are committed to leaving a positive footprint on our environment. Our campus facilities are guided by policy and practice that work to reduce our carbon footprint, while leading Waterloo researchers influence local and global climate change, and student-led initiatives inspire and engage the next generation.
