Sustainability

University of Victoria certainly strives to be a leader in the green movement. Indeed, the school is always looking for ways it can implement creative sustainable practices. And its’ hard work and ingenuity are definitely paying off. Aiming to be a zero-waste institution, UVic has installed over 60 recycling stations throughout the campus. Impressively, it even has a portable water bottle filling station available during school events. Moreover, roughly 72 percent of all food waste is composted. Water management is also essential to the university’s sustainability initiatives. To that end, sensor faucets and low flow toilets have been installed in a number of buildings. And a state-of-the-art irrigation system helps to reduce the use of irrigation during the summer months. Practices like these will definitely help ensure that UVic reaches its goal of cutting water consumption by 25 percent in 2019! Naturally, when it comes to the campus grounds, sustainability is also at the forefront. The university has worked diligently to remove all toxic chemicals from its routine landscape management. Additionally, UVic has instituted a policy decreeing that 75 percent of all new plants installed on campus are native. Further, the university is allowing selected areas of the campus to become naturalized. This reduces irrigation and saves resources—8,500 cubic meters of water and $17,000 annually to be exact. Finally, a group of environmental studies students have created the popular Elliot Naturescape Garden Project. The garden promotes increased biodiversity on campus and teaches students how to design and care for a landscape plan.
