Change the Story

Help us make a better world.

For us, at the University of Ottawa, sustainability isn’t just a job; it’s a lens through which we see the world.

The Office of Campus Sustainability (part of Facilities Services) strives to have sustainability integrated into daily life on campus in as many ways as possible, big and small — from taking notes on scrap paper to designing more energy-efficient campus facilities. It all matters, and often results in significant cost savings to the University and its students in addition to reducing our impact on the environment.
