Staff Sustainability Network

The Staff Sustainability Network creates a platform for sustainability leaders from all departments and faculties to come together and collaborate on green solutions for the UVic campus. Interdisciplinary leadership allows for transformative and holistic approaches to sustainability initiatives.

In the past, the Staff Sustainability Network has run the Dump and Run campaign for the residence move out, the shake and fold campaign for paper towel usage, the holiday device shutdown campaign, and the printwise campaign.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have not been running the Staff Sustainability Network but we hope to get together again once we return to campus and safety protocols allow. Stay tuned for more information and if you're interested in joining the Staff Sustainability Network, please email and we can contact you once we start up again.
