Sustainability at Red River College

Farmer's Market 2019 posterThe Sustainability Office operates across administrative and academic areas of the College and is responsible for promoting a culture of sustainability among staff, students and faculty. We regularly have new projects on the go and are constantly working to implement, coordinate and advance existing and emerging programs and initiatives. Our office is a hub that engages the college community through programming, events, and communications. We’re grateful for the campus and community partners we work with to advance our collective sustainability journey.

In teaching, research, campus operations, and our connection to community, we’re proud of our widespread and deep-rooted commitment to sustainability. Our Strategic Plan guides the college’s direction and charts our path at the highest level of the organization.

With a staff of three, our small (but mighty) team works across administrative and academic areas to implement, coordinate, support, spearhead and celebrate programs and initiatives.

What sustainability means to us

Our lens derives from the 1987 report of the Brundtland Commission, Our Common Future. We are committed to carrying out our institutional mandate in a manner that

“meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”

We recognize the interconnectedness and interdependence of the social, economic and environmental aspects of sustainability and work to strike that balance in everything we do.
