About Us


The Dalhousie Office of Sustainability is running its annual Campus Sustainability Survey until 11:59PM Monday November 12th.

The online anonymous survey takes approximately 10 minutes to complete and we are looking for responses from all students, staff, and faculty at Dalhousie University campuses. At the end of the survey you will be given an option to enter into a draw to win one of five $100 gift cards to a grocery store of your choice (Sobeys or Atlantic Superstore).   

What does the Office do?

Dalhousie University has been involved in promoting sustainability in its operations and curriculum for over 30 years. However, global and local sustainability challenges such as energy security and efficiency remain, and these challenges are compounding. The Office of Sustainability focuses on supporting solutions that create positive social, ecological, and economic change in university operations.

The Dalhousie Office of Sustainability works to incorporate sustainability concepts and criteria into policy and planning, building and retrofit projects, and operations. The Office strives to engage and encourage student, staff, and faculty in practicing sustainable behavior.

The Office works with many campus and community partners to achieve its objectives. By ourselves we are one, together we are a community!
