Western is committed to addressing sustainability challenges, both on campus and on a broader scale. We recognize that as a university we have an important role to play in building a sustainable future. Therefore, Western has made several regional, national and international sustainability commitments, including:
- Talloires Declaration
- COU Pledge - Ontario Universities Committed to a Greener World
- Paris Pledge for Action
- Agreement to support sustainable development through education and research
- Investing to Address Climate Change: A Charter for Canadian Universities
Together, these commitments reflect Western's ongoing dedication to sustainability through the teaching, research and service at our university. We are committed to working alongside other post-secondary institutions and global leaders to address some of the most challenging sustainability issues, including signing onto the Paris Pledge for Action to do our part for the Paris Agreement's call to limit global temperature rise to less than two degrees Celsius.
