Sustainability and climate action at SFU
Simon Fraser University (SFU) leads by example, pursuing ecological, social and economic justice for our local and global communities. Our faculty, staff, students and community members are taking action to address climate change. Together we are building healthier, safer and more regenerative and resilient communities.
Sustainability and climate action is woven throughout all vice-presidential portfolios at SFU, including planning and administration, operations, research, academics, campus and community engagement, and international partnerships.
SFU's Strategic Sustainability And Climate Action Plan
SFU's original five-year sustainability plan defined the university's sustainability and climate action goals from 2020 to 2025, guiding our institution to prioritize climate justice, resilience and action in all its work. Building off this plan, SFU's 2022-2025 Strategic Sustainability and Climate Action Plan is a refreshed plan that will continue as a living document and process to reflect an adaptive planning and implementation process.
Throughout 2023, monthly spotlights will highlight each of the plan's six goals. The current feature is Goal 5: Operations, which is led by the VP Finance and Administration portfolio. Goal 5 aims to embed climate mitigation, resilience and sustainability into all operational decisions and projects at SFU, working to achieve milestones toward the United Nations-led Race To Zero campaign commitment.
