Georgian College takes environmental issues seriously. Official policy requires us to keep environmental concerns in mind in everything we do. That ranges from curriculum and classrooms to products we purchase and how we deal with our waste.
Among the College’s core principles in the new strategic plan Vision 2015 is this: “We will evolve our practices and embrace change to ensure financial, social and environmental sustainability.”
Created in 2007, the College’s Environmental Sustainability Committee leads the way in making sure that Georgian steadily makes progress on these issues and more.
