University of Alberta's Office of Sustainability

Founded in 2009 at the University of Alberta, the Office of Sustainability informs and inspires students, staff and faculty to adopt sustainable practices. As a bridging organization, the office aims to help campus community members to deliver projects and connect to information, experts, tools and funding options. The university takes an integrated approach to sustainability by incorporating teaching, research, operations and the outreach services needed to support them. To foster this integration, the campus sustainability initiative is structured in three strands: outreach and engagement, academic teaching and research, as well as facilities, operations and services.
