Sustainability at MUN

The Sustainability Office, a unit of the Department of Facilities Management, was created in January 2007, with the hiring of the University’s first Sustainability Coordinator. In April 2007, the Advisory Committee on Sustainability (ACS) was formed. This committee provided a link from faculty, staff and students to the Sustainability Office. In December 2012, the Vice-Presidents' Council (VPC) established a new committee called the University Sustainability Committee (USC).

The Sustainability Coordinator’s role is to:

  • work with Memorial’s University Sustainability Committee (the USC)
  • determine priorities for sustainability initiatives
  • develop, promote and implement sustainability initiatives
  • act as point of contact for inquiries and input from staff, faculty and students
  • compile information on current sustainability initiatives at MUN; and
  • research sustainability issues and potential initiatives.

MUN commits itself to the following sustainability initiatives: water initiatives, recycling and waste reduction, energy reduction, educational initiatives, sustainable transportation, and paper initiatives.
