Sustainability assessments

In order to understand the scope of sustainability at Concordia and to better implement future sustainable strategies, a sustainability assessment is imperative.

Sustainability Assessments

The first sustainability assessment at Concordia was conducted in 2003 through the creation by Sustainable Concordia of the Concordia Campus Sustainability Assessment (CCSA). Between 2003 and 2015, Sustainable Concordia and Concordia University have measured progress and made recommendations towards key sustainability goals.

Recent versions of the CCSA have benefited from the use at Concordia of a self-reporting sustainability framework called STARS. Since 2012, we have used STARS to rate our sustainability efforts in the categories of Academics, Engagement, Operations, Planning & Administration, and Innovation.

In 2020, we applied for the first time to the Times Higher Education (THE) Impact Rankings, which ranks universities on their contributions towards our global progress on the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

We also applied for Vélosympathique certification for the first time in 2017, in order to assess how we are doing in relation to services for our cycling community!
