April 25, 2022
McMaster University has recently launched two new sustainability initiatives. McMaster will be implementing its new sustainability strategy across campus, which will include growing commitments to a campus sustainability culture; sustainability-focused teaching, learning, and research; creating a self-sustaining campus; and ensuring operational excellence. McMaster has also announced that it is installing two electric boilers to heat the campus, which will reduce the university’s carbon emissions. “We are excited to share that McMaster is looking for ways to fast-track our plan to eliminate greenhouse gases on campus,” said McMaster chief facilities officer Debbie Martin. “We are developing a plan for achieving net zero carbon emissions on campus by as early as 2035.” McMaster (1) | McMaster (2) (ON)
