Cultivating healthy, resilient communities

The 2017 Sustainability Strategy charts a path for The University of Winnipeg’s ongoing sustainability efforts. 

Our strategy is the result of an institution-wide effort to identify not only the core overarching goals of our sustainability work over the next five years, but also concrete, measurable targets that will enable clear pathways for accountability and transparency.

Our Strategy:

  • was created through conversations and research across the university
  • builds on our work over the last decade
  • reflects a holistic understanding of sustainability
  • emphasizes our most important opportunities for progress
  • is realistic to our current circumstances
  • is ambitious, advancing the University's role as a sustainability leader 
  • aligns with frameworks for university sustainability i.e. Sustainability Tracking, Assessment & Rating System™ (STARS®)

The Strategy identifies 4 overarching goals and 19 measurable targets, outlined in the menu below.
