Welcome to the University of Guelph Sustainability Office

The Sustainability Office, housed within Physical Resources, is a central hub for campus sustainability information, resources and action-oriented initiatives. 

From writing waste reduction policies and plans to expanding resource recovery efforts and educational programming to empowering students to develop action-oriented projects, the Office continually works to improve campus sustainability.

Our Mission & Vision 

To us, campus sustainability is about stewarding our shared, valued resources – our people, our campus and our planet – to meet the needs of the present without compromising the ability of our future generations to meet their own needs. 


Our mission as an Office is to cultivate and foster a culture of sustainability that empowers students, staff and faculty to make informed choices and take action on pressing environmental and social issues.  

We are committed to building and fostering meaningful collaborations across campus and beyond to advance sustainability and create a just and equitable future.
