The Green Building Plan will guide sustainable development of academic and residential neighbourhood building projects on the Vancouver Campus. The vision for the plan is to create a pathway for achieving buildings that contribute to a net-positive campus which promotes human and ecological wellbeing as expressed in UBC’s 20-year Sustainability Strategy.
Over the next year, we will develop the Green Building Plan through stakeholder engagement and evaluation of options, in order to create a 20-year framework (2015-2035) and a 5-year implementation plan.
We have undertaken preliminary interviews with key stakeholders to reflect and learn from past projects and the existing development process.
Workshops were held with a large group of stakeholders, experts, and faculty, to gather ideas on January 24 and 25, 2017. This feedback will be included in the Green Building Plan and a report from the workshops will be available in March 2017.
