BCIT Presents: Explore Sustainability Projects
Join the British Columbia Institute of Technology’s (BCIT) School of Construction and the Environment and Facilities Department to learn about the North End of the campus and see how we use living labs to innovate and teach sustainability. Learn about the successes and challenges of living lab projects and explore solutions for creating sustainable communities.
We will examine a living lab project that demonstrates sustainable practices on campus and that reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 50-75% in six buildings. Learn about the wood waste-to-energy facility, which will use 250,000kg of wood waste from on campus programs to heat buildings in the area. Approximately 45 minutes.
Colin leads the Energy and GHG Management Team at BCIT. His team is tasked with reducing BCIT’s GHG emissions by 33% through strategic energy management projects. For the past 10 years, he’s worked in various aspects of sustainability, including energy, carbon emissions, water, and solid waste management.
Sarah Campbell works as the Sustainability Programming Manager for the School of Construction and Environment at the British Columbia Institute of Technology (BCIT), in Burnaby, British Columbia.
