Welcome to the
Sustainability is a universal phenomenon of economic, ecological, and social importance and Laurier's Sustainability Office is committed to environmental awareness and action on campus and beyond.
Through engagement, projects, and programming, the goal of the office is to create a culture where sustainability is integrated into daily operations. The Office coordinates sustainable practices within construction, conservation, energy, food, procurement, transportation, waste, and water through education, operations, and community partnerships.

Physical Resources now facilitates the use of a moveable water fill
station that can be used for events. The station can be used for free - there will be a small cost for grounds
to move and hook it up to the desired location on campus

Water: Grounds 'Smart about Salt' Program
All ground staff have gone through the program and 4 are certified. Ecosalt and the Jet Blue are used for entrances,
and some steps. We also have a brine solution we use for certain snow
events that is applied with a sprayer. Brines and other winter maintenance liquids are used to prevent
the ice/pavement bond from forming.
Each snow event is different and there are many factors that go into the decisions we make with regards to plowing and ice melting material.
Tim Hortonís is located in the King, Peters, and Science Building and it is important to remember that the empty beverage cups are recyclable in the paper stream and the lids are recyclable in the plastics stream.
