Waterloo's Environmental Sustainability Strategy articulates the goals and objectives the campus will be working towards to advance environmental sustainability. It was developed between 2016-2017 by the President's Advisory Committee on Environmental Sustainability through a collaborative process.

This strategy has three interdependent goals:

  1. Be a leader in sustainability education and research
  2. Operate the campus sustainably
  3. Imbed sustainability practices into campus culture

These are meant to be broad and inspirational, and are further broken into 27 more specific objectives and five foundational actions to build momentum.

Read below for a summary of the objectives and foundational actions, or download the full pdf document to read the entire strategy.
