The Advisory Council on Sustainability provides a forum for faculty, staff, students and external representatives to provide advice on McGill campuses’ sustainability initiatives.
The mandate of the Advisory Council is to position McGill as a leading institution in North America on sustainability by contributing to the implementation and evolution of McGill’s Sustainability Strategy, and related plans, policies, and performance indicators.
The Advisory Council is composed of 17 internal and external members from various backgrounds. They include the Provost and Vice-Principal (Administration and Finance), the Director of the Office of Sustainability, two senior administrators, four senior academic leaders, two students, and six external representatives with significant expertise in sustainability governance and policy. This group will combine a deep understanding of McGill’s core activities with new and original perspectives, to create a rich and generative process. The main achievements and activities of the Council will be reported to the Principal at least once a year.
