UBC joined the University Climate Change Coalition (UC3), to activate climate action within regional communities.
Along with 18 leading North American universities that make up UC3, UBC will act as an agent for collective action by convening community and business leaders to accelerate the implementation of research-driven climate policies and solutions.
In 2018, each of the universities convened a climate change forum with leaders in their regions to sustain the momentum of climate action and inform best practices, policies and recommendations with the rest of UC3.
“At UBC, we have a long-standing commitment to exploring and embracing sustainability through ground breaking research, education and innovative projects on campus. These efforts helped to significantly reduce waste and greenhouse gas emissions on campus, and to promote smart, healthy communities. We look forward to working with other members of this coalition to promote sustainability in our region and beyond.”
