U of T, UFV, UOttawa take steps to make campuses greener

The University of Toronto, the University of the Fraser Valley, and the University of Ottawa are taking steps to make their campuses greener. U of T has announced a new project to update the heating and cooling systems in several Victorian buildings at its St George campus using a geo-exchange system. The system is expected to reduce U of T’s greenhouse gas emissions by 15,000 tonnes a year. UFV has sustainably renovated its B-150 workplace. The space was redesigned with a focus on creating dynamic spaces with high-performing and environmentally friendly materials. UOttawa has announced plans to divest its direct equity fossil fuel holdings by 2023 and its indirect holdings by 2030.
