At UBC, our goal is to lead globally and locally in sustainability and wellbeing across our campuses and communities. How? By going beyond minimizing harm to become net positive contributors to human and environmental wellbeing.

Find out more about who we are, the ideas that guide us, and our history of innovative practices and programs.

UBC faculty, staff and students use the Vancouver campus to test new ideas with partners from the private, public, and NGO sectors, and the stewards of this unceded, traditional xwməθkwəy̓əm (Musqueam) territory.
UBC aims to teach future sustainability leaders, conduct relevant research, and ensure that our private, public and NGO partners take the outcomes of our work together into commercial and community spaces.

Who We Are

UBC puts sustainability at the heart of teaching, learning and research, operations and infrastructure, and community. Our sustainability efforts are proudly delivered by a rich diversity of people across campus.

Regional and International Engagement

UBC seeks to work with other sustainability leaders to make a difference on the most pressing social and ecological issues. And we aim to share what we learn on campus through meaningful engagement.

Campus Tours

UBC's sustainability efforts can be seen across every corner of campus, and campus tours at UBC are a great way to learn about sustainability in action. Try a self-guided tour, or book a Green Building Guided tour.
