A brief description of the sustainable operations and maintenance policy/program and/or O+M rating system(s) used:

Humber College’s leadership decision to develop an Integrated Energy Master Plan (IEMP) to maximize opportunities and minimize risks from the College’s use of energy and water from 2017-2034.
Over the past 2 years Humber has worked on projects surrounding;
Update basic operating framework - existing
Systematic treasure hunts/continuous improvement
Recommissioning - existing buildings
commissioning new buildings
Metering and control upgrades
Data centre heat recovery
Energy Centres
Boiler conversions/expansions
Solar Photovoltaic

Humber has integrated sustainable practices and planning principles into their water management practices.
The 2017- 2019 water efficiency program has currently achieved ~50% water efficiency gain from baseline data. This has been due to completion of installing three(3) liter toilets as well as low flow toilets, showers and taps. Additionally, water use is monitored to track peak demands and manage overall use, reduce the amount of water used for ground maintenance through sustainable landscape. Humber has also planted drought tolerant, non-water intensive plants around the campuses to minimize water use. Which can be seen in the 2017-2018 Sustainability Report (http://humber.ca/sustainability/sites/default/files/uploads/documents/SustainabilityReport_ReducedSize_FINAL.pdf)

Humber College ground maintenance practices includes;
Avoid use of all pesticides to prevent toxins from leaching into the soil
Using only environmentally-friendly coated salt products to minimize corrosive salt damage.

Humber College Green Cleaning Program;
The goal of this Green Cleaning Program is to reduce the exposure of building occupants and maintenance personnel to potentially hazardous chemical, biological and particle contaminants, which adversely impact air quality, health, building finishes, building systems and the environment.

This Program addresses environmental best practices for cleaning the interior of all college operated buildings. Specifically, it addresses purchasing sustainable cleaning, hard-floor and carpet products, and entryway systems; procuring sustainable cleaning equipment; developing and implementing standard operating procedures for effective cleaning; promoting and improving hand hygiene; developing guidelines for handling cleaning chemicals; developing staffing and employee training requirements; collecting and addressing occupant feedback; and establishing procedures for use of chemical concentrates and dilution systems.

Cleaning products and materials, including hard-floor and carpet-care products, used at the LRC shall, when possible, meet the requirements of IEQc3.3: Green Cleaning, Purchase of Sustainable Cleaning Products and Materials.

Product types subject to these requirements include, but are not limited to, bio-enzymatic cleaners, hard-floor cleaners, carpet cleaners, general-purpose cleaners, specialty cleaners, odor control, disinfectants, disposable janitorial paper products and trash bags, and hand soaps.
