uLaval pledges to maintain sustainable development despite provincial cuts

October 27, 2015

Université Laval has announced that it will maintain its benchmarks for sustainable development despite cuts in provincial funding. The university made this announcement in its 2015-2018 strategic plan, which it unveiled earlier this month.  Executive and Development Vice-Rector Éric Bauce told le Soleil, "it is true that we have less money, but the fact of these cuts does not mean that we will stop developing [sustainably].” The university currently spends more than $360 M per year on goods and services, and it reportedly plans to continue making these purchases in a responsible and sustainable way no matter how much it must tighten its belt. le Soleil
