April 20, 2008

In a survey of 20 institutions, researchers from Busby Perkins+Will have found that while many Canadian universities are interested in tackling climate change, they still have a long way to go.

The researchers advise renovating existing buildings and adopting alternative energy sources such as solar and wind power.
