Humber's Office of Sustainability

Humber College's institutional value of Sustainability states "We preserve our collective future." We lead and support Humber’s commitment to provide national leadership in developing sustainable campuses, and are a hub for campus engagement and information. We foster a culture of sustainability by leading by example: how we operate our buildings, interact with the physical environment and communities around us, and in the way we teach and learn about sustainability. By incorporating economic, social and environmental sustainability across the college, we are creating career-ready citizens for the challenges of today's world.
