UTM rebrands sustainability office, introduces new mandate to align with tri-campus efforts

September 27, 2019

The University of Toronto Mississauga has rebranded its Environmental Affairs Office as the Sustainability Office and introduced a new mandate for the office, a change which comes as the institution streamlines its tri-campus approach to sustainability. “The new name aligns with the other sustainability offices at Scarborough and St. George, and it’s also a more recognizable name for the UTM community,” says Ahmed Azhari, director of utilities and sustainability with UTM’s Facilities Management & Planning team. “We are working towards a common goal—to make the University of Toronto a leading institution in sustainability, to minimize our environmental impact and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.” UTM adds that a new Principal’s Sustainability Advisory committee will help to develop short- and long-term sustainability priorities for the campus.
