Sustainability Annual Comparison

The Sustainability Committee identified the products, services and activities that as well as the impacts and level of significance which identified five aspects with the largest environmental concerns. This process led to the identification of Niagara College’s five sustainability priorities for the coming years: electricity, water, paper consumption, waste and carbon emissions.

After the significant aspects were identified a baseline process was developed to determine the objectives and targets for each. Annual reports about targets can be found here.
