University of British Columbia

UBC Sustainability Fund

The UBC Vancouver Sustainability Fund will provide funding for projects that help the University achieve its sustainability goals through reducing campus energy and water consumption, reducing operational waste generation, increasing operational waste diversion from landfill and increasing the use of alternative energy and alternative transportation. A steering committee will define the fund governance structure and a technical advisory committee will review applications and make recommendations for funding approval by the steering committee.

Applications must include a scope of work, business case and a monitoring and verification plan. Operational savings will be monitored with a minimum of 50% of the savings being returned to the fund until the full cost of the project has been repaid.
