UBC Okanagan Climate Action Plan 2030

In December 2019, the UBC Board of Governors unanimously endorsed a Declaration on the Climate Emergency. The Declaration includes a commitment to accelerate emission reductions, aligned with the Paris Agreement goal of limiting global warming to 1.5°C. It also includes a commitment to widen the scope of UBC’s climate action planning to include areas that extend beyond UBC’s operations, such as commuting, air travel and food, where UBC also has control or influence over emissions. The UBC Okanagan campus’ work on the Climate Action Plan is in development; stay tuned for more information to come soon.
