On the evening of November 14, staff and students gathered in the McGill bookstore for the launch of the first draft of McGill’s sustainability strategy – otherwise known as Vision 2020.
Since the Sustainability Projects Fund's inception many projects have been successfully implemented to further green McGill. Students and staff have been sensitized to environmental issues and continue to think of ways to further make events and daily operations more sustainable.
One set of events that may been overlooked are the many barbecues that occur in various departments during the spring, summer and fall. In the early 2000s, Oak Ridge Laboratory estimated that a charcoal grill emits 11 pounds of carbon dioxide hourly.
