SFU’s sustainability ambassador program has won the City of Burnaby’s 2010 environment award in the business stewardship category. The award recognizes the ambassador program’s success at promoting sustainability and raising awareness of environmental issues in the university community, as well as its effectiveness in reducing SFU’s ecological footprint. The program, which began at the Burnaby campus in 2008, has expanded to the Surrey and Vancouver campuses and now includes more than 50 sustainability ambassadors who raise awareness of environmental issues. The volunteer staff and faculty ambassadors encourage employees and students to work and live in a more sustainable manner, providing helpful tips on how to change old habits and ways of thinking.
