Student ambition and action, and the assistance of the Sustainable Development Committee, have led to the creation of the Bishop’s University Sustainable Development Policy. This document demonstrates our commitment to improving our sustainability with adaptable, realistic and measurable targets regarding all three aspects of sustainable development: environment, economy and community.

Whether it’s the construction of a geothermal heating system to improve our energy efficiency, or the elimination of water bottles on campus, Bishop’s University serves as a role model in the area of sustainable development.

The documents below outline the actions we are taking to minimize our negative impact on our environment whilst integrating sustainability all throughout the Bishop’s campus.
