Laurier cuts carbon emissions by 25 per cent in two years

When it comes to reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, Wilfrid Laurier University is well ahead of its schedule.  Through a variety of sustainability initiatives, Laurier reduced its intensity-based carbon emissions by 15 per cent in 2013. Combined with reductions in 2012, the university has reduced its GHG emissions by a total of 25 per cent in just two years across all of its campuses, already exceeding its five-year goal of 15 per cent. In 2012, the university launched a Sustainability Action Plan, which targeted a 15 per cent reduction of GHG emissions by 2016, using 2009 as a baseline year.
