A global leader
For more than 20 years sustainability has been a foundational aspect of UBC’s campus operations, research, teaching, and student engagement. These efforts are reflected in high international rankings for environmental impact. Today UBC is working towards an accelerated short-term GHG emissions reduction target of 85% by 2030, a commitment made in our 2021 Climate Action Plan.
From venues and accommodations built to LEED standards, campus-wide multi-stream recycling network, reductions in single use plastics in our accommodations and meeting venues, and climate-friendly menus and food waste reduction efforts in our catering operations, UBC’s Conferences & Accommodations team has the operations and expertise to help you organize a sustainable event.
