Does the institution have policies and/or guidelines in place to improve outdoor air quality and minimize air pollutant emissions from mobile sources on campus?:

A brief description of the policies and/or guidelines to improve outdoor air quality and minimize air pollutant emissions from mobile sources:

SFU requires all fleet and private vehicles on campus to adhere to requirements of each of the three cities in which the institution has campuses in: Surrey, Vancouver and Burnaby.

City of Surrey: Highway, Traffic & Parking Regulation Bylaw 13007

City of Vancouver: Motor Vehicle Noise and Emission Abatement Bylaw 9344

City of Burnaby, where SFU's largest campus is located does not have a policy that specifically addresses idling, however, the city has published guidelines to encourage a reduction in idling through its Drivesmart campaign which SFU uses to communicate with its community through the Parking and Sustainability Mobility website.

Furthermore, SFU's Vehicle Use and Insurance Guide published through SFU's Risk Management requires that fleet vehicle users eliminate idling. In addition, SFU has no-idling signage throughout its Burnaby campus.

Has the institution completed an inventory of significant air emissions from stationary campus sources or else verified that no such emissions are produced?:
