At York University, sustainability isn’t just about energy efficiency or waste reduction or alternative transportation – sustainability is also about creating a space for our community of students, faculty, staff, alumni, retirees, vendors and visitors to be part of the solution. Do you think we could be doing better on sustainability? Do you have a solution that could help to make a difference? If so, Sustainability @ York wants to  hear from you.

Our new video offers a  taste of what York University has been doing, then visit the Sustainability website to explore some of the ways that you can get involved. Take a pledge, volunteer as a Sustainability Ambassador, or sign your office up for the Green Office program. It’s never been easier to make a difference at York University.
