A brief description of the institution's initiatives to shift individual attitudes and practices in regard to energy efficiency:

The college launched the "Energy Can't Save Itself" campaign in 2015. Large scale decals installed in high-traffic areas and computer labs across the college provide tips on energy conservation. A page was also dedicated on the Office of Sustainability's website to energy saving tips at school, work and home. The energy awareness campaign was heavily promoted on social media.

As part and parcel of our sustainability initiatives, and in support of Canada’s commitment to a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, Humber has recognized the importance of examining energy and water consumption more strategically and in 2015 authorized the development of an Integrated Energy Master Plan (IEMP) looking forward to 2034. The IEMP team is being challenged to create a plan that meets the following goals for Humber College:

-Offer world-class courses addressing competitive and integrated energy, water and climate solutions while acting as a living laboratory for our students
-Create a campus-wide energy culture by engaging both staff and students via education/events
-Reduce energy use by 50% per square foot by 2034
-Reduce water use by 50% per student by 2034
-Reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 30% by 2034
