TRU has earned platinum and the highest over-all sustainability score in the prestigious and globally recognized AASHE STARS report.

The TRU Campus Strategic Sustainability Plan, created in 2014, guides our efforts. It is aligned with the overarching goals of TRU’s Strategic Priorities Plan, which has increasing sustainability as one of its five priorities. Our office plays an active role in three main areas to achieve all goals:


We strive for energy efficiency and progressive energy use through conservation, new technology, behaviour change, and renewable energy sources.


We coordinate engagement opportunities with the TRU community using events, contests, programs and grant funds.


We help TRU students, faculty and staff members in any way we can with their sustainability projects.

Apply to the Sustainability Grant Fund

If you have your own sustainability project in mind, we may be able to help with a grant of up to $100,000. This fund is open to TRU students, staff and faculty.
