This is the first progress review on the climate emergency at UBC since the Board of Governors and Senates unanimously endorsed in principle the Climate Emergency Task Force (CETF) report in early 2021. The Sustainability Hub is responsible for convening and coordinating people across UBC to make progress on the report’s recommendations.

The progress listed here is a snapshot of UBC’s emerging response to the climate emergency. It’s impossible to be comprehensive about climate related activity across two campuses with over 70,000 students and close to 19,000 faculty and staff, and we welcome your input to make future reports more complete.



UBC Climate Emergency Response

The climate emergency is here now, and UBC is committed to bringing our community together in confronting this crisis. We are mobilizing around the UBC community’s urgent demand for climate justice and acting upon UBC’s Climate Emergency Declaration and Task Force Report.
