- 2025 Sustainability Plan
- EDI Statement
During the pilot year (2020-2021), Living Lab research projects will be focused on the following four research areas:
- Building and fleet emissions: reducing SFU’s operational greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions
- Renewable energy on campus: research solutions to shift SFU’s energy sources to renewables
- Transportation emissions: reducing SFU’s transportation GHG emissions
- Procurement and waste: reducing operational waste
These areas were chosen as they are the most active targets in the SFU 2025 Sustainability Plan. This plan provides the foundation for SFU’s sustainability and climate action efforts.
To reduce the invisible environmental impact of information and communications technologies, Yani Kong measures university’s outputs and develops education and policy shifts for SFU.
Kamaria Kuling investigates the benefits and challenges of replacing SFU’s operational vehicle fleet with low or zero emission vehicles.
Afagh Mohagheghi aims to utilize renewable energy and energy savings strategies to develop sustainable indoor gardens at SFU’s Surrey campus.
Despite a growing awareness, there's still misinformation about bioplastics. Nadia Springle researches sustainable single-use alternatives to petroleum-based plastics.
