U of T campuses commit to becoming climate positive by 2050


All three of University of Toronto’s campuses—U of T St George, University of Toronto Mississauga, and University of Toronto Scarborough—have committed to achieving a climate-positive operating model by 2050. This “Climate Positive Tri-Campus Commitment” builds upon U of T’s 2019 Low-Carbon Action Plan and extends its 2021 pledge to make the St George campus climate positive by 2050. To achieve this goal, the three campuses will work together to align their Climate Action Plans, achieve sustainable campus growth, and increase the magnitude of their existing greenhouse gas reduction projects. “I look forward to achieving this goal together and to opening a path to go beyond net zero,” said UTM Principal and U of T VP Alexandra Gillespie. “It’s the right and good thing to do – for our lifetime and for lives to come.”
