Canadian post-secondary institutions are contributors to climate change due to their large geographic, economic and environmental footprint, and also face a number of emerging environmental risks.
As such, institutions have a significant role to play in mitigating the impacts of climate change and enabling the transition to a low carbon economy through their institutional operating practices, community engagement and research and education that take place on their campuses, all while striving to manage and adapt to the climate risks on their institutions.
CAUBO initiated a Climate Change Mitigation Strategies project to support members’ efforts to mitigate and adapt to the impacts of climate change. The project includes four components, and the third resource is now available for members to access.
These resources will provide additional support to members as they develop their plans to mitigate the impacts of climate change and achieve net-zero.
CAUBO’s Climate Change Project has been made possible by financial support from The McConnell Foundation.
