SUSTAINABILITY is a movement - a shift - toward a resilient future.
Sustainability initiatives at UBC's Okanagan campus
British Columbia's government has set into motion a comprehensive Climate Action Plan centering on the Greenhouse Gas Reduction Targets Act (Bill 44). According to the Act, commencing 2009, public sector organizations (PSOs) must submit a Carbon Neutral Action Report (CNAR) for the calendar year which includes a description of the actions taken to minimize its GHG emissions during the previous year and to set out plans to continue minimizing those emissions. The UBC Okanagan campus' 2014 report has recently been released by the Okanagan Sustainability Office.
