Institutional Sustainability Strategy
Our roadmap to continuous improvement
We are committed to creating opportunities for entrepreneurial thinking, applied practice and project-based learning in sustainability. The Institutional Sustainability Strategy is a roadmap for continuous improvement in our pursuit of excellence and leadership in sustainability. How we get there is laid out in the supporting and interdependent frameworks: Advancing Sustainability Education and Research, Engagement for Sustainability and Sustainability in Administration and Operations.
Launched in 2016, the Institutional Sustainability Strategy continues to be our guiding document and will be renewed in the 2023-24 academic year.
Institutional Sustainability Strategy Goals
The University of Calgary aims to become a Canadian post-secondary education leader in sustainability, in our academic and engagement programs, administrative and operational practices, and through supporting community and industry in their aims for leadership in sustainability.
