Sustainability and climate action are core commitments at SFU, embedded across campus operations, research and teaching, community engagement and more.

Our approach

The global climate emergency affects everyone. SFU’s approach to sustainability and climate action reflects this reality, rejecting the idea that this work is the responsibility of any one group or person at our university. Whether staff, faculty, students, alumni or community members, there is a role for everyone to play in building a more sustainable and climate-just future.
