Concordia demonstrates sustainability through many initiatives that involve the university community on both campuses. Discover more about these groundbreaking projects.
Committed to sustainability
From the way we promote access to fresh, local produce that is sustainably grown to programs that aim to reduce water waste on campus, and more, Concordia is at the forefront of initiatives that demonstrate our committment to sustainability.
We strive to provide food on campus that improves the health of our students, employees, communities and the environment. We promote access to fresh, healthy, local and seasonal food that promotes ecologically sound, economically viable and socially responsible agricultural practices.
Waste refers to any type of discarded material that can be sent to landfills. Reducing waste reduces our impact on the environment. Find out how to dispose of packaging, food, electronic waste, construction materials, and more.
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is an internationally recognized sustainability rating system for buildings. Our LEED-certified buildings on campus reflect our commitment to best practices in construction on campus.
Energy & climate
Faced with the global and local challenges of climate change, there is an urgent need for more efficient and cleaner energy consumption. At Concordia, the focus is on ensuring that all buildings are as energy efficient as possible.
Water is essential in supporting life and providing food. Through different initiatives, Concordia strives to reduce water consumption and conserve this precious resource especially in consideration of the University’s highly urbanised location.
As Concordians, we have many options when it comes to getting to and from the university. We cycle, carpool, car share and take public transport. Find out how you can take advantage of any of these transportation services.
