As a leading post-secondary institution with a reputation for innovative environmental programs and applied research, we are dedicated to taking a leadership role in environmental sustainability on campus and in the community.


By 2016, Niagara College hopes to meet the five sustainability targets which include:

  • Electricity Consumption 10% Reduction;
  • Greenhouse Gas Emissions 10% Reduction;
  • Waste Generation 65% Diversion;
  • Rate Water consumption 5% Reduction;
  • Paper Consumption 50% Reduction

More information about our plan, priorities and targets, reports and tracking (and much more) can be found on our NC Sustainability website. For a quick overview of some of our recent projects, click here.
