The McGill Office of Sustainability provides the strategic guidance, support, and resources to transition McGill into an institutional model of sustainability for society. In partnership with students, staff, and faculty from across the University, we advance McGill’s vision for a sustainable future to bring us closer to achieving our three long-term targets: to attain a platinum sustainability rating by 2030, become zero-waste by 2035, and achieve carbon neutrality by 2040. In addition to its other sustainability engagement programs, the Office of Sustainability also stewards McGill’s flagship Sustainability Projects Fund (SPF). The largest of its kind in Canada, the SPF is valued at $1 million per year. Its mandate is to build a culture of sustainability on campus through the seed funding of interdisciplinary projects.
