The Canadian Mountain Network Administrative Centre is now a silver certified Green Space at the University of Alberta’s north campus. Our office has achieved silver certification by promoting sustainable transportation habits, evaluating consumption and waste production, pursuing eco-friendly purchasing practices, creating a safe and energy efficient work environment, and maintaining an inclusive and diverse outlook.
The Green Spaces Certification Program at the University of Alberta promotes sustainable practices across campus to “reduce waste and pollution, protect natural resources, support social inclusion and invest in our local community.” The Green Spaces Program is part of the Campus Sustainability Initiative, which focuses on “outreach & engagement, teaching & research, and facilities & operations.” The initiative is led by the Office of Sustainability, Office of the Provost, and Energy Management and Sustainable Operations Unit. Together, they encourage the university to meet its sustainability goals.
