GBAP Institutional Policies & Plans

Sustainability in building policies and practices has been a priority for UBC for over 20 years.


The Green Building Action Plan works across different scales, from building to district, in conjunction with other UBC plans that together support UBC’s strategic goals. The implementation of the GBAP will be informed and complemented by these other UBC plans, such as the Campus Plan and Climate Action Plan, as well as relevant provincial and federal policies. At the same time, the GBAP will provide direction to future UBC policies.
