Socially Just within Ecological Limits

Sustainability at BCIT

Sustainability is founded on the value of social equity and a recognition of ecological limits to the amount of resources we can use without exceeding nature’s capacity.

BCIT’s Sustainability Vision aims to inspire and mobilize change across industry and society for a sustainable future.

BCIT Policy 1010 Economic, Social, Environmental Sustainability is an umbrella policy that articulates 7 sustainability goals to help us achieve this Vision.

Institute Sustainability supports the advancement and implementation of BCIT’s Sustainability Vision and goals.

Integrating sustainability at BCIT

Our commitment to sustainability encompasses everything from advancing the state of practice through education and research, to improving the efficiency of campus operations, to engaging the community across the Institute.

BCIT and BCITSA sign SDG Accord

BCIT and the BCIT Student Association became a signatory to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) Accord in 2022.

The SDG Accord includes the 17 goals set forth by the United Nations (UN) as a universal call to protect the planet, end poverty, and improve the lives and prospects of all humans.

A key requirement of the Accord is to openly and annually account for progress and to share BCIT’s experience and learning from implementing the SDGs.

BCIT’s first Sustainability Vision charts an exciting but complex journey for the Institute. It will be an exercise in tenacity and change management, underpinned by cross-functional and interdisciplinary collaboration.
