The university’s first-ever assessment of sustainability was called the Concordia Campus Sustainability Assessment (CCSA) and was launched in 2003 by Sustainable Concordia, which went on to become and has remained a student fee-levy group.
Concordia’s Office of Sustainability was created in 2019. There are five full-time staff positions across different departments whose primary mandate includes furthering sustainability at the university.
In 2019, Concordia joined nine other Quebec universities in declaring a climate emergency and went on to commit to fully sustainable investments by 2025.
The Sustainability Ambassadors Program is an initiative linking sustainability-minded students, faculty and staff with opportunities to provide peer-to-peer sustainability education with participating groups or departments.
