Sustainability at NSCC

NSCC achieves STARS Gold Rating in Sustainability
Sustainability is included in everything we do. It's part of our curriculum learning activities. It's a value we practise every day, from diverting waste on campuses to encouraging active transportation and healthy living. Sustainability is the right thing for us to do, and more importantly, we are preparing Nova Scotia for the fast-growing green economy.

We value sustainability

Don Bureaux
"With 13 campuses across the province, the College can and will make a difference. The 17 Global Sustainable Development Goals set by the United Nations are the blueprint to achieve a better and more sustainable future for all. They address the global challenges we face – not only climate change, but also poverty, inequality, environmental degradation, prosperity, peace and justice. NSCC is committed to working toward these goals and will continue to monitor sustainability activities and progress."
Don Bureaux
NSCC President
