Sustainability at SFU Economics

A leader in sustainability

Simon Fraser University is an institutional leader in pursuing  ecological, social and economic sustainability through its operations, research, academics, campus and community engagement. We are proud to have been among the first departments to embrace sustainability at SFU, and we continue to be one of the most vocal supporters of SFU's sustainability initiatives.

Sustainable offices

SFU Economics is among the early adopters of sustainable office practices. We have undertaken a number of measures to promote sustainable behaviours, such as installing light occupancy sensors, low-flow taps, and we are in the process of developing an on-boarding sustainability course for new employees to promote sustainability awareness and habits. We are also the first office in Burnaby to re-certify and improve our ranking from Bronze to Silver.
