Decarbonisation at UVic

We want to reduce the carbon intensity of our investments by at least 45% by 2030. This will require a fundamental shift in how we invest UVic’s working capital investments.

Decarbonisation working group

A working group of experts on campus will support the carbon reduction goals outlined in the Responsible Investment Policy. The working group will meet regularly for a period of 12 to 18 months.

The working group will provide information, expertise and advice that will inform:

  • the development of carbon tracking methodology
  • the development of appropriate reporting to the Board and campus community
  • a road map for implementation of the decarbonisation strategy
  • investment opportunities that move UVic towards achieving our carbon intensity reduction goal
