UCW understands the importance of sustainability to the future of our planet. UCW is committed to creating a green footprint for the environmental stewardship of our campuses. We commit to not only teaching sustainability but also to modeling it through our own actions.
UCW is a proud member of the Association for the Advancement of Sustainability in Higher Education (AASHE).
When UCW moved to Vancouver house, the University was careful to follow the waste management hierarchy by reducing our need for materials (Reduce), identifying any materials that we could bring with us (Reuse), ensuring materials we needed had recycled content (Recycle) and that our relocation and purchase packaging was recycled, and recovering hard to recycle by-products from our purchases (Reclaim).
