OCAD University is committed to advancing responsible environmental practices and promoting sustainability through its academic and administrative programs and practices. OCAD U wishes to engage its stakeholders, both internally and externally, in discussing and taking actions to reduce waste, increase recycling and limit carbon emissions. The university will continue to support and launch initiatives that reflect the concern the OCAD U community shares regarding environmental responsibility and sustainability, and will be an active champion for innovation that advances “green” thinking and practices.
The role of the OCAD U Sustainability Office is to coordinate all sustainability initiatives on campus. This site is intended to be a forum for the OCAD U community to share information about these activities and organizations.
The Sustainability Office is in the process of developing a complete Sustainability Master Strategy (SMS) for all of OCAD U. The SMS will lay out general guidelines to be followed, objectives to be pursued, and key actions to be taken in the years to come.
