Environmental Sustainability

Environmental Sustainability is not the sole responsiblity of Campus Planning or Facilities. To be successful in this endeavor, the participation of most Facilities departments is required as well as design teams who implement projects targetting sustainability goals or formal certification for new and existing buildings.

The University of Lethbridge has a vision to provide a 'greener campus' that enhances student learning experiences, reduces energy use and other impacts and preserves the natural, unique landscape that surrounds the University. One of five Strategic Priorities set out in the 2009-13 University of Lethbridge Strategic Plan is to “Enhance the Environmental Sustainability of the University.”

Three objectives to meet under this priority are to continue to transform the University into a sustainable community, incorporate sustainability into teaching, learning and research, and promote sustainability inside and outside of the University.
