The University of Guelph and the British Columbia Institute of Technology have both announced sustainability initiatives that coincide with 50th anniversary of Earth Day. UofGuelph’s Board of Governors voted to divest from fossil fuel companies in its endowment portfolio. “Finding and supporting ways to live and work sustainably is fundamental to improving life – U of G’s core mission,” explained UofGuelph Board of Governors Chair Shauneen Bruder. Meanwhile, BCIT has launched Sustainability Vision, an outline of the schools’ path for continued integration of sustainability through institutional policies, practices, and culture.
