After months of consultations with more than 500 community members, McGill’s Climate & Sustainability Action Plan has finally launched! 

In addition to addressing the University's most pressing sustainability challenges, this is the first Plan specifically aimed at reducing McGill's carbon footprint. 

We are thrilled to be embarking on this new journey with you, the McGill community, and want to show our gratitude to all those who have helped (and will help) us along the way. 

Join us in celebrating the launch of the Climate & Sustainability Action Plan and enjoy inspired conversations and refreshments with the students, faculty, and staff who are helping us blaze new trails. 

What is Vision 2020?

The Vision 2020 Sustainability Strategy lays out a framework for achieving the highest possible standards of sustainability on our campuses. The Strategy contains two Action Plans. Following the completion of the 2014-2016 Sustainabilty Action Plan, McGill has created the 2017-2020 Climate & Sustainability Action Plan. 

Learn more about the history of Vision 2020 and the process behind the creation of the Climate & Sustainability Action Plan on the McGill Office of Sustainability website.
