Energy Usage and Conservation

The university sets out to achieve carbon neutrality by 2050, with an interim target of 45% reduction of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by 2030, from 2019 emissions. UWindsor is proud to officially announce and present the Campus Carbon Neutral Masterplan, the roadmap outlining our strategy to reducing GHG emissions and increasing energy efficiency on campus.

The University of Windsor energy usage and Scope 1 and Scope 2 GHG emissions reports:

  • GHG Emissions for 2019 -2022

To mitigate climate change, in 2018 the University of Windsor proposed an ambitious Energy Plan. It is currently under review by the Ontario Ministry of Labour. 

Also, the University has received two EnWin GreenStar awards, one in 2010 and the second one in 2018 for the sustainability initiatives.
