About SDGs

Canada was amongst the 193 UN member states that adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and is committed to implementing the SDGs both in Canada and Internationally.

In 2018, Canada announced that it would provide $49.4 million over the next 13 years to establish an SDG unit and establish monitoring and reporting of the goals by Statistics Canada. Western University, as an institution of higher education, supports Canada’s commitment to the SDGs.

By tracking campus initiatives that align with the goals, Western is able to examine current initiatives through a lens that encompasses the three pillars of sustainability, as well as showcase the initiatives and organizations on campus that supports creating a more sustainable future for everyone.
