Universities, colleges take steps toward environmental sustainability


With Earth Day quickly approaching, several universities and colleges have shared news and launched initiatives related to sustainability. At Mount Allison University, Hydro Flask gave out reusable bottles to students on campus in celebration of the university winning the #RefillForGood Hydro Flask competition and the 2 Million Bottle Challenge. HEC Montréal presented its action plan for sustainable development, corporate social responsibility, and ethics to its community late last week. The action plan is intended to be an ongoing effort that follows four operational streams: strengthen governance, take action, strengthen and support projects, and create and transfer knowledge. Niagara College signed the Sustainable Development Goals Accord and Nature Positive Pledge as part of its deepened commitment to sustainability. The agreements were signed in the college’s newly renovated Office of Sustainability.
