Humber's Integrated Energy Master Plan logo

Humber is continually working to embody our institutional value to preserve our collective future. All campus development and operations begin by incorporating sustainability into the design and building process and connecting students to real-world learning opportunities. Humber's Integrated Energy Management Plan (IEMP) represents the college's long-term strategy of achieving significant reductions in energy, water, greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and contributes to global sustainable development goals. 

Created in 2015 as a response to the climate crisis, the IEMP outlines a comprehensive plan to meet significant energy efficiency, greenhouse gas and water reduction goals by 2034. The IEMP will deliver deep retrofits to existing infrastructure and ensure new campus buildings are among the most efficient in the world.

Impact to date

Since 2016, Humber has implemented many deep energy retrofits, including building envelope, lighting, solar photovoltaic, water efficiency and controls retrofit projects.  The results to date, relative to the 2014-2015 baseline year, are:

energy icon and 24.2% number

reduction in energy use per square foot

Water icon and 23.7% number

reduction in water use per student

reduction in absolute GHG emissions

million saved in utility costs
