Office of Sustainability
Has the institution advocated for federal, state, and/or local public policies that support campus sustainability or that otherwise advance sustainability?:
A brief description of how the institution engages in public policy advocacy for sustainability, including the issues, bills, and ordinances for or against which the institution has advocated:
Our School of Public Policy produces (SPP) research papers and communiqués that offer in-depth analysis on the most pertinent issues of the day and create specific recommendations for policy makers. Key research areas include Social & Economic Policy, Energy & Environmental Policy, and International Policy. Also, forums are hosted for communication and best-practice sharing between business, government and academia.
The Institute for Sustainable Energy, Environment & Economy (ISEEE) coordinates problem-focused, interdisciplinary research to inform policy and investment decisions regarding the environmental challenges of energy production and use.
For a list of other research institutes that are engaged in policy oriented research, please visit http://www.ucalgary.ca/sustainability/institutions
There also a number of ongoing sustainability-related research programs that may or may not be affiliated with any one institute or centre that have policy implications or that actively engage in the policy process. For that list please visit http://www.ucalgary.ca/sustainability/research_projects
