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

Operations on Downtown Campus:
While we currently do not self-evaluate with respect to LEED-EB criteria (due to the limited availability of resources), Facilities Management and Ancillary Services continually work on improvements to our building operations and maintenance as part of our existing commitments (i.e. internal policies and others). This implies that many factors are already considered, including impacts on surrounding sites, energy consumption, usage of environmentally-preferable materials, indoor environmental quality, and water consumption. For example:
- no new parking spaces are being built on our main campus
- efficient fixtures for water and energy are used
- certified green cleaning products are used in addition to using more durable equipment to reduce waste
- recycling facilities are offered
- continuous (re)commissioning of infrastructure takes place
- metering of steam and energy (on major buildings) is monitored in real time

Macdonald Campus sustainable operations and maintenance program:
Following a request from the Dean and Associate Vice-Principal of Macdonald Campus, the Macdonald Campus Sustainability of Operations Working Group was constituted in November 2019. This working group, composed of students, staff and faculty, have the mandate to increase sustainability across campus. To do so, 6 subcommittees were created to address specific aspects of sustainability and create targeted action plans. The subcommittees include: Waste management, transport and energy, food systems, natural environment, built environment and education, communication and outreach.
