You have the passion and ideas to make your world more sustainable. These "take action tips" will help you get there. See below for tips, tricks and tools to support your efforts.

Save Energy

UBC has a significant impact on energy consumption across BC. Help us meet UBC’s ambitious energy conservation and climate action goals by doing your part.

Reduce Waste

UBC aims to divert 80 per cent of all waste from the landfill by 2020. If everyone separates their food scraps into the green Food Scraps bins, and sorts their recycling correctly, we can do it.

Conserve water

Although 70 per cent of the earth is covered in water, only one per cent is available for human use. Find out how you can support conserving water today.

Purchase sustainably

Keeping sustainability top of mind when purchasing contributes to UBC's vision of operating sustainably at every level.

Take climate action

Carbon emissions are heating up the globe, and UBC has committed to some bold climate action to do our part.

Commute sustainably

UBC is the second largest commuter destination in Metro Vancouver. Getting to and from campus is easy with transit, cycling, and ride-sharing options.

Green your events

With thousands of events held on campus each year, incorporating sustainable best practices into your event can make a real difference.
