Queen's Sustainability Office

Queen's Sustainability Office advances the university's green initiatives, identifies and implements new opportunities for working closely with the Queen's community on such initiatives, and creates a greater degree of awareness about environmental issues within the university.

Sustainability Strategic Framework

Queen's Sustainability Strategic Framework acts as a campus sustainability roadmap. The framework establishes guiding principles and fosters a common understanding of sustainability at Queen's.

Climate Action Plan

In 2010, Principal Woolf signed the University and College Presidents' Climate Change Statement of Action for Canada. This pledge commits the university to engaging in several activities aimed at reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and enhancing research and curriculum in the areas of climate change and sustainability. It also requires developing a comprehensive Climate Action Plan (CAP).

Since January 2012, Queen's has been working in partnership with the consulting firm Delphi Group to develop a CAP for Queen's. Our CAP will include a summary of the current campus greenhouse gas (GHG) inventory; GHG emission projections; operations climate action goals and strategies to reduce emissions; and mechanisms to track progress on goals and actions.

A 22-member internal advisory committee has also been established to collaboratively work on the evaluation, planning, development, and implementation of the plan.

Student Initiatives

Queen's students are responsible for many of the environmental projects and practices on campus and around the world, such as:

Live Building

[Beamish-Munro Hall]Located in Beamish-Munro Hall, Queen's Live Building is a living lab, where the Integrated Learning Centre's mechanical, electrical, and structural systems are monitored in real-time and left open to view, to show how sustainable practices can be incorporated into building design. It also supports a weather station!
